About Us

This has been a family business since 1980. It is in it’s third family of owners.   We pride ourselves on treating each other, as well as our clients, with care. 

Robin Lerios began working for Jim York in 1994 & bought the business in 2012 moving it to 619 Soquel Ave. in 2013. She learned her sense of design & color growing up in Santa Cruz with her dress designer of a mother.  And is also a professional photographer. 

Kelly Lake was hired as soon as Robin signed the papers & she is now the “go to gal” for all complex construction jobs. Kelly is adept at carrying out the legendary “York it” ability to get any job done. She is fast & precise, and what every framing shop needs.

Robin’s daughter, Sophia Lerios joined the crew in 2015.  Sophia brought an understanding of color with her as a make up artist.  She learned the many facets of the job on the design floor & then stepped into a position of management, moving the company into a more efficient business.

Alan Laine joined The York crew for the second time in 2015, having worked with Robin previously for the last owners. He is an adept employee with specific talents that we cherish & rely on.  Alan adds a sense of humor & chill vibe to the work place.

Alexandra Moskow has proven to be an all around great employee in the 2 1/2 years she’s been with us.  She is a talented craftsperson in design & assembly.

Anthony Villano graced our door 1 1/2 years ago when we “weren’t hiring”.  We are SO glad that we reconsidered after meeting him.  He has learned & mastered a variety of skills to be a solid part of our work force.

Denie Kiser Shaw is our newest addition.  She is a great representation of our values to the public as a designer.  Her skill set is perfect to aide with the choices of colors & styles.  She is a joy to have on the team.

Each & every piece of art, whatever style it may be, is important to us. Our educated staff of designers & craftspeople are willing to push any envelope to create your dream.

 We carry an every changing collection of prints & Giclees of local artists
