Now Open Saturdays!
An award winning artist, Anita honed her talents at a young age, ultimately receiving a college degree in Graphic Design and Illustration. Always pushing to challenge herself and her creative boundaries, it was not long before the burning passion for fine arts ignited into a series of fine art pieces, sought after by Galleries throughout North America. In 2006, with the arrival of her first son, Anita put her career on hold. Soon the mother of two, Jack and Gavin, Anita looked forward to one day again painting full time. In 2016, with the boys older, Anita decided it was time to put brush back to canvas. She decided however, that this time she would curate her own work. Anita opened her first Gallery in Clayton Heights in 2017 and with her husbands help, and training in framing and conservation, added Art and Picture Framing to the galleries services.
The name Attractive Distraction came from Joe as he often referes to Anita as his "Attractive Distraction". If you surf as Joe does you will also catch the tie in.
"I've heard great things about Attractive Distraction and I'm so glad that I finaly went in on Satuday. I had an antique frame that was I thought, beyond repair. How they managed to straighten it out I have no idea but, it looks great!"
"I frequent Attractive Distraction since they are around the corner from my Studio. Their specials for artists are great but it's the attention to detail and creativity that really keeps me coming back."
"Attractive Distraction is truly a really attractive place to have your framing needs fulfilled. The service was pretty fast despite the large amount of work they already had on the go. Not only that, the quality of finishing is second to none."
"For years I drove by A.D. and would make a mental note to check on their corporate pricing. So glad I finally did. We were looking for quality Certification and Diploma Framing at a resonable price. A.D. came through. Thank you!"
" Very happy with the framing of an old car spec sheet; It looks great. Great selection of frames, nice shop, quick turnaround. It was an added bonus that Joe is also an auto enthusiast. I will return for any future framing needs."
"What a pro!!! Framed a large mirror. I was a little worried about the weight so they even came to my home and professionally hung it.
No worries of it falling now. Awesome Job!"
