About Us

Hi, my name is Christine (Hako-Oja) Hasenhündl. 
Hako-Oja is my maiden name. It's Finnish and the
'j' is pronounced as a 'y'. 

Mina is my shop cat, and she travels with me.

Born in northern Ontario, I now reside in Edmonton, Alberta, and my studio is in Wainwright, Alberta, two hours east of Edmonton. ( see map
)

My love of pencil drawings and watercolour began at an early age and I continue to work in both mediums. With a preference for photo-real art, I focus on animals as the subject of my pencil drawings, whereas my watercolours usually depict golf course and nature scenes. 

A desire to frame my own artwork was the beginning of the next step... becoming a professional, custom picture framer. That dream came true on March 27th, 2004, when I opened my shop in Wainwright.


I am very proud to have been the recipient of several artwork awards, and also many picture framing awards, both national and international, in world-wide competitions put on by the Professional Picture Framers Association.


Being the first Canadian in 30 years to win an international framing award with them is quite an honour.

I enjoy attending their annual conference and trade show. The many educational seminars allow me to keep up with all the newest trends.
