About Grand Image:

Art is hard. But it doesn't have to be. Grand Image does everything we can to make it fun and easy. And we really do mean everything. We handle creating, customizing, procuring, shipping, installing artwork on time and on budget. And we do it all in house. You tell us what you like, want, or need and we make it happen.

We are an interior designers’ secret weapon. An art consultants’ best friend. Any wholesalers partner. We create custom art solutions with clients like W-Hotels, Ethan Allen, Marriott, and Z Gallerie across the country every day. Basically, all our customers are either repeats or word of mouth referrals because we make the process so nice.

To do all that we have curated a diverse group of talented, creative, and curious individuals. We are predominantly female, and most of our managers are female. Girl power. Our growth in the last 24 months has been tremendous. You need to be smart and talented, but we also need someone we could get a beer with.

We are excited to meet you.
