About the Portfolio Collection
The Portfolio Collection was established in 1995 by Carol Simmonds. When working as an interior designer, Carol recognised a gap in the market for a designer friendly art company, and so the business began. We are bespoke picture framers and art publishers, specialising in exclusive, limited edition prints by renowned artist Bella Pieroni and others.
Nick has been with the company since the outset, and is your first point of contact if you require information on any of our products or services. He oversees the framing of all artwork in our Rutland based workshop.
Jo Barrett is Carol's daughter and the newest member of the team. A successful artist in her own right, she will be heading up the publishing side of the business. She is looking forward to bringing new artists and genres to the collection.
Clare Humphreys assists husband Nick with the daily running of the company, and she will be happy to assist with any enquiries you may have.
Carol's highly successful collaberation with Bella Pieroni brought Bella's work to a huge international audience. Carol sadly passed away at the end of 2017, but the team is pleased and proud to carry on the business she put so much into.
