Episode 40 – Creative Entrepreneur Leslie Damstra

Hi! I am Leslie Damstra. I am a first generation Canadian and am now the second generation owner of my family business, Reflections Art and Framing.
.
I worked with/for my parents off and on since she was 12 years old. I went and did other things for about 25 years including auto parts manufacturing and business administration but, custom framing, it seems, remained in my blood. Even when I worked elsewhere, I came back and helped my parents when it was needed. It was a fairly easy decision then to take over when they were ready to retire in 2015.
.
Over the past 7 years it has been my pleasure to meet and work with artists and art lovers from Southwestern Ontario and beyond. I have framed keepsakes from all over the world.
.
I encourage people to buy art when they travel; it’s a great way to relive a moment! I also love seeing what the creatives in our region have made and am extremely honoured when people come to me so that I can put the finishing touch on their pieces. If a picture paints a thousand words, then I provide the quotation marks.
.
Stop by and see me at my shop, located at 99 Oakside Street, London, ON N5Y 1E6.
