About Us


Jodie Prymke CGF is Australia's only "Design Star" international award-winning picture frame designer and South Australia's only PFGV Certified Guild Picture Framer.

With 36 years' experience as a qualified designer, her boutique framing gallery in Adelaide, South Australia, specializes in high-end art preservation and conservation, unique frame designs, French matting and frame restoration. Her clients include private collectors, museums and public institutions. 

Jodie began her professional picture framing career in Melbourne in 1996. After 12 years as a fashion designer for Maggie T and the Sportsgirl/Sportscraft Group, she joined the Picture Framers Guild of Victoria in 1998. In 2001, she became a full member of the PFGV, achieving her Certified Guild Framer’s certificate, one of only 19 in Australia, the only one in South Australia.

In 2007 and 2008 Jodie travelled to Bologna and Florence in Italy, where she studied gilding, frame restoration and traditional framing techniques at the artisan studio “Laboratorio Scuola Oro e Colore” owned and run by C & S Martelli, Master Gilders to the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.

On returning to Australia, “Jodie Prymke Fine Art Framing” was opened in March 2008.

In January 2014, at the PPFA National Conference in Las Vegas USA, Jodie was awarded in the International Larson Juhl “Design Star” Competition.  Out of hundreds of entries world-wide, she was the only Australian picture framer to be awarded.

In the six years the competition was running (2013 - 2018), she was the only international competitor outside of the USA to ever receive a "Design Star" award. 


In 2015, Jodie was approached by Picture Framing Magazine to become a contributing author. Picture Framing Magazine is the industry's leading magazine, and is published in the USA.
