Art works of value require conservation framing and we have recently framed Dickerson’s, Norman Lindsay’s and original Pacasso art works.  Children’s art work can also fall into this category, so don’t limit your valuable options and always consider conservation framing. 

We service an area ranging from Lismore, Byron Bay, through to Ocean Shores, Pottsville, Cabarita Beach, Casuarina Beach, Kingscliff, Coolangatta, Miami, Burleigh Heads, Curumbin,  through to Brisbane and Beyond.  We also celebrate clients from Murwillumbah, Uki, Mullumbimby and Banora Point.

Here at Coastal Framing and Design, we are in the business of doing what we love.  Love it, Frame it.

Here is our story ….Jen and Rex

In 2010, we said farewell to our country life in South Australia, including our home, 40 hectares of Rex’s hand planted vineyards in Coonawarra, a boutique winery housing his prize winning wines, a career in education, a small photography and picture framing business, (our ‘hobby job’ ) and made our exciting  journey across to the coast.  Our “Sea Change” was happening.

We landed here in Casaurina, for a couple of weeks…….and the rest is history.  Like many of you, once you are here, you cannot contemplate a better place on earth to live.

As I went teaching here on the coast, Rex soon realised that he would be unemployed or self employed.  Cutting my lunches and sitting on the beach wasn’t a long term option for him, not in my books, anyway!

We discovered a small business, “Coastal Framing and Design” for sale over in Industry Drive, Tweed Heads South and the rest is history. We knew that our years of involvement in our various creative pursuits would be a perfect foundation to build our business on.

In seven years, our business has grown three fold and we are excited and honored to have such a diverse and interesting range of people seeking our services.

We consider ourselves a community of ‘like minded’ people who appreciate beautiful art hanging on their walls. People from all walks of life, from all over Australia are a pleasure to work with when they come to us to preserve their memories, keepsakes and tell us their interesting and unique stories.
