Here is our story ….Jen and Rex
In 2010, we said farewell to our country life in South Australia. This includes our home, 40 hectares of Rex’s hand planted vineyards in Coonawarra, a boutique winery, a small photography and picture framing business, (our ‘hobby job’ ) and made our 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.
