Debbie Hilaire is a professional photographer and framer located in London, Ontario, where she has lived for almost 20 years with her husband and felines. A graduate of the Photography program at Fanshawe College in London, she has operated a small business for the past ten years.
Best known for her unique style of framing sports jerseys, she combines a creative eye for photography with her skills as a picture framer to produce unique, one of a kind designs. Her work is instantly recognizable.
When not busy with work, Debbie loves to pursue her other passions; gardening and bird watching. She has traveled extensively throughout the world, always in search of the next new bird or another perfect photograph.
"Creativity has always been a huge part of who I am as a person, whether it is expressed through my work as a framer or through the lens of a camera."
Deb has framed several jerseys for our office now and we continue to be impressed with the quality, creativity and craftsmanship of each one she has worked on. The jerseys are displayed in our office where clients are constantly commenting on how great they look, they are true conversation pieces!
Navigator will continue to use Deb in the future as we add to our collection of jerseys and sports memorabilia and I would highly recommend her work to anyone.

"Having our sons' hockey sweaters framed, shows how much we take pride in Jamie's accomplishments throughout his junior career. His Under 18 Team Canada Gold Medal Sweater, Captain of the Peterborough Petes OHL League Champions sweater and OHL All Star Classic sweater are among the others that hang front and centre in our home without making it look like the neighbourhood sports bar".
"Debbie's framing technique allows us to display our son's sweaters in a setting worthy of the memories and pride they represent".

"I have been a collector of sports jerseys for years and have had many mounted and framed. I recently had Debbie Hilaire mount, mat and frame a London Knights Jersey and Memorial Cup tickets. Debbie's commitment to absolute perfection shows in her work!"
I am thrilled with the finished product and will now only use Deb exclusively for all of my framing."
