We are artists serving our artist community, here at "I've Been Framed". Our hearts go out to so many of you who have been hit hard financially by this pandemic. We help by always offering you discount art supplies (which you can order online & pick up curbside if you are local to Portland, Oregon, as well as, a few online item art supplies we can ship to you). Plus, we now have gathered a long list of 17 resources to assist you with financial relief. We hope it helps you and we wish you the best. You mean so much to us!
