Axelle are the best [picture] framers around, the quality of their work is first class. Jeff and the team are all wonderful to work with, knowledgeable, friendly, flexible and they will really go that extra mile to help you out, especially when you are in a crunch.
— Suzanne M. (Yelp)-- Speaking on Axelle Frames



From 2008 to­ 2016, Jeff Burke was the Director of Custom Framing & Shipping for Axelle Frames (a subsidiary of Axelle Fine Arts & Bertrand Delacroix Gallery). During this period his staff kept both Manhattan galleries and the Boston gallery stocked with a constant rotation of framed original works from world renowned artists including: Michel Delacroix, Albert Hadjiganev, Francois Bard, and Russel Young. Axelle Frames became a fixture in the Boerum Hill neighborhood in 2000, servicing local residents, businesses, designers, and artists across New York city and beyond.

Due to the tragic and untimely death of Bertrand Delacroix, who was the founder, heart and soul of Axelle Fine Arts, the company closed its doors permanently in March 2016. In the following months, Jeff founded Boerum Frames LTD which is conveniently located next door to the former home of Axelle Frames.


Boerum Frames LTD is committed to providing Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, and and its surrounding neighborhoods (Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn Heights, Gowanus, Fort Greene, and others) with the same quality custom framing that Axelle Frames’ clients were accustomed to receiving. Boerum Hill is an eclectic neighborhood, whose residents have sophisticated and educated tastes. Our mission is to exceed our clients’ expectations in service, craftsmanship, knowledge, price, and professionalism.


Jeff Burke has been custom picture framing since 1998. He has framed notable pieces including a Rembrandt Silverpoint drawing, and paintings by modern day icons including: Henri Matisse, Tom Wesselmann, Damien Hirst, Banksy, and many others. Burke received a degree in Painting and Art History from University of Wisconsin-­Milwaukee and is an accomplished artist of his own. He enjoys drawing from life and hosts figure drawing at The Invisible Dog for local artists twice a month.  Find out more about Jeff at:
