About Us: Who We Are

FrameStyles was founded in 1986 by Michael Kokesh and Trudy Frederick.


michael kokesh

Our Master Framer, Michael Kokesh, came from a background of sheet metal construction and carpentry, and now oversees our 4000-foot workshop and the experienced custom framers who work there.  Michael also does installation: The more challenging a project, the better. With his wife, Maureen,  he has two beautiful daughters, Sophie and Rosemary.

Trudy Frederick

From the time she was four years old, Trudy knew she would be an artist. She found her niche after art school, when she worked for her aunt and uncle at their custom frame shop. Three years later, she and Michael opened FrameStyles with a shared dedication to quality products, excellent service and reasonable prices. Trudy runs the store and is responsible for all buying. She lives with her cats Sweetpea, Trini Lopez, and Malka. Contact her at trudy[at]framestyles[dot]net
