Hi. I'm Amy Rice, owner of Woodruff's Art Center. I started this business in 1989 and still love it! How fortunate am I to do what I love and enjoy working with the best staff ever! I am the hands on "jack of all trades and master of some". I oversee the every day business, order product, do merchandising, bookkeeping, maintenance, hang gallery exhibits, assist customers with art supplies and custom frame design, change light bulbs and my favorite job….paint/create art for the gallery. Amongst my staff I'm known as "The Salvage Queen" because of my knack for finding remedies for any problems that come up. How do I find time to do it all and also keep competitive with my tennis game? People ask me that all the time and I wonder myself but I guess when you enjoy all you're doing you somehow always find the time. I'm in and out all week and all hours between the shop and home studio/office but always accessible.
My name is Lisa Horton. When I first started at Woodruff's Art Center I didn't know anything about custom framing and very little about art supplies. Luckily they offered on the job training. Now some 18 years later I am experienced in all aspects of custom framing from assisting clients at the design counter to building shadowbox frames and everything in between. I will help customers select a piece of art work from our gallery as well as aide students with their art supply list. I love my job and my co-workers. We work hard at Woodruff's but we enjoy our work, each other and our customers. I've been accused of being a people person and am proud to have that title.
