B Creative Entrance

B Creative is located at 2354 Long Lake Road at Ester Road.

B Creative carries the largest selection of framing supplies in Sudbury with an inventory of hundreds of custom choices for frames ranging from wood to metal with all custom framing work performed on site by Joanne herself who has a wide range of skills from carpentry to soldering, glass cutting and canvas stretching.

B Creative also carries a wide selection of custom matte backings and glass to cover nearly any type of traditional artwork or the framing of custom memorabilia displays, an increasingly popular form of displaying unique personal items such as cherished keepsakes, hockey jerseys or items for a special memorial tribute to a departed loved one.

In addition to the framing side of B Creative, the shop on Long Lake Road also carries a wide range of art supplies including acrylic and oil-based paints, specialty papers, canvasses, brushes, easels and markers for sketching.

Over the past several decades Joanne has earned a position of respect in the local arts community for her passion and high quality work in addition to her support of local artists including First Nation’s Artists, many of whom have their original creations displayed and sold through B Creative’s gallery.

Joanne is always on hand to greet customers and to provide advice for the proper colours, materials and design tips because she believes that every client’s art work needs to “be creative and inspirational”, and Joanne’s attitude, passion and customer service is what sets B Creative apart from the competition.
