Soon after graduating High School, Gail moved to Ireland for 12 months and was inspired by the beautiful landscapes and preserved history that is everywhere in Ireland. After she returned to the U.S., she worked in a graphic arts firm for about 4 years doing custom enlargements. At 21, Gail started picture framing as a hobby after seeing her boss frame a picture for his office and got the bug. While recovering from knee surgery a few years later, Gail met Pat Croce while he was starting the physical therapy program at Haverford Hospital and the future founder of Sports Physical Therapy Inc. Sports Physical Therapy became Gail’s first paying client.
As Pat’s new business continued to grow, Gail provided all the framing services, framing hundreds of articles and pictures that Pat collected and displayed throughout his offices. As Pat’s VIP client list continued to grow, Gail was referred by Pat as his framer of choice. That same year, Gail founded Original Images and her business was born.
Soon after, Gail was introduced to radio legend Pierre Robert of WMMR, a client since 1983.
Philadelphia’s very own movie writer and director M. Night Shyamalan has been a client since 2002.
Gail also has had the great privilege to work for Sirius Radio & CNN TV personality Michael Smerconish for almost a decade.
From scrapbooking Michael’s Inquirer & Daily News articles every week to framing original paintings, Gail makes her customers feel right at ease. Gail’s exceptional service includes picking up and delivering your one of a kind framing jobs to your home or office. One of Gail’s specialties has become custom shadow boxes. From framing 12 pairs of Houdini’s hand cuffs to a treasured family spoon & nail from Italy.
