Artful framing

Hellen Hsieh of Mountain View prepares to hang artwork by members of Abilities United at Cafe Zoe in Menlo Park. Hsieh was honored with a President's Volunteer award for her 200 hours of service to Abilities United, an agency that serves Santa Clara and San Mateo residents with disabilities. Hsieh, the proprietor of Design Loft in Mountain View, painstakingly frames the artwork with donated materials, helping the art sell more quickly and command higher prices, says Wendy Kuehnl, Abilities United's marketing director.
