Rex and Jen came from Country South Australia in 2010 for a sea change.

From a rich history in horticulture, viticulture and wine making, Rex soon decided that here, on the coast, it was either self employed or unemployed.

Jen has a long career in teaching, working in all facets, but mostly contributing to the arts through specialising in music and visual arts, and literacy.

In 2010 the energetic couple  purchased COASTAL FRAMING AND DESIGN and remain in the same location, other than relocating to 5/25 Industry Drive, next door, in 2016. The development of a state of the art showroom, workshop and print studio was a milestone in their achievements.

With a life long passion for the ARTS, and enjoying the creative side of life, Jen and Rex continue to share their love of art, framing, design, home styling, creating things and working with people to share their stories and experiences.

The Coastal Framing community is rich in its diverse customers and their characters.  The common thread being the enjoyment of art and the stories told and shared around the framing table.
