PRESERVING WHAT YOU LOVE MOST

At FOLK our signature black and white portraits provide strong emotional connections that invite everyone who visits your home to pause and look more deeply into your portraits and the story they tell. Your treasured moments are handed to you on archival pieces of art that will never disappear due to failing technology but instead last a lifetime.

Computer hard drives crash and cell phones get lost. Those precious photographs you were hoping to cherish and share with your family and friends are gone forever when technology fails. We want to show you another way of preserving what matters most so that you, your freinds, and your family can enjoy them in the decades to come.

We guarantee quality, security, and craftsmanship with our products. Instead of worrying about losing your most significant moments, you will be able to proudly display your custom art in your home alongside your most treasured items.

 

ART THAT LASTS

Our mission is to lift the mood of your home with quality artwork that increases in value year after year, generation after generation. Your loved ones deserve the best.

True Black And White Fine Art Photography that never goes out of style.

 

CONNECTING GENERATIONS

OUR PROFESSIONAL STAFF WILL GUIDE YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY

Decide where you'd love to display your art

Arrive having already thought about which FOLK collections would suit your home and where you would love to hang your artwork. Think about more than just your walls, the areas of your home that you walk past daily - consider how your art will enhance the essence of a room, both the physically and emotionally. Your artwork can not only complete your interior design but also lift the mood of the room, including everyone in it.

 
 

MEASURE where the peices are to be displayed

With such a wide range of sizes, it’s a great idea to measure your walls or furniture before your appointment. Use your phone to take photos of the areas where you’d like to hang your artwork. This information is extremely valuable to your Designer when working out how to customize your artwork. Bring along any pictures of your couches, dressers, beds… anything that provides a sense of the look and feel of your home.
