About Portico Rotorua
Portico is your one-stop shop for gifts, picture framing, photo art and photo restoration in the heart of Rotorua.
Portico was established in Rotorua over fifty years ago. The current owners, Susan Jory and John Miles have owned the business since 2017.
John and Susan are thoroughly enjoying transforming Portico into the very best picture framing gallery in the Bay of Plenty with loyal customers from Tauranga, Rotorua and Taupo who repeatedly visit us to enjoy selecting their framing options, confident that they can trust Portico do a superb job.
Susan is a Fine Art Trade Guild trained and experienced picture framer and the only Rotorua member of the PPFA (Professional Picture Framers Association). As an artist herself, she understands the importance of the design process and how a creative approach to custom framing will enhance your piece. No job is too big, too small or too complex.
Susan loves her work and picture framing brings so much job satisfaction. Customers bring in something that is precious to them, and take away something they love even more that they can enjoy and share with others for generations to come.
When not helping customers at Portico, Susan enjoys painting, baking and exploring our beautiful New Zealand countryside.
He became interested in photography at the early age of 10 when he received his very first camera. After many years working in IT, John made a major career switch to pursue photography full time.
When he is not meeting and helping customers in the gallery John enjoys exploring New Zealand’s beautiful countryside tramping, biking or camping. And of course, wherever he goes, his camera is over his shoulder.
