Our Senior Framer
Eric Linville, a Bay Area native, started his love of framing in 2003 working mainly as a designer. About 2 years later he took on more of the framing aspect of the business. He began working for Eco Framing in 2011 where he took on another aspect of framing, installation. His favorite thing to frame is the object that you might think is impossible to frame, and items like guitars, lacrosse sticks or baseball memorobilia. In his spare time he likes to play Discgolf, and spend time with his wife Melissa and son Logan.
