About us

CoolArt Picture Framing Gallery was established by Joe “Cool” in 1998. Joe has been in the framing business since 1991 and completed a full framing apprenticeship leading up to this.

Originally from Tenterfield, NSW, at the age of 16 Joe moved to Toowoomba to complete a 4 year apprenticeship in framing. Following his apprenticeship Joe moved to Brisbane to manage a mass-production framing company for 2 years and then moved to Coolum Beach in 1998 to set up his own Picture Framing Gallery at the age of 22.

Since setting up shop in the centre of Coolum, CoolArt has been the place to come for your custom framing needs. Specialising in custom picture framing, original artwork, conservation framing, exhibition and corporate framing, awards and valuable documents, photographs, needlework, mirrors, jerseys, medals and other memorabilia. We also provide assistance with art mounting, custom-made stretched canvas frames, mirrors and glass replacements. Restoration of artwork and frames is also available. (Receipts provided for insurance claims)

The business has grown significantly over the past 20 years and the shop has turned into a cultural hub for locals and visitors alike, to enjoy a coffee amidst the artworks.
