We believe a business is as good as the staff who run it
From customer feedback and some very kind reviews we believe our team are doing their utmost to help you bring art and beauty to your environment. We are extremely fortunate to be working in the area of aesthetics, be it custom picture framing, or beautiful mirrors for your home or work space or a piece of art from a local or international artist. Aesthetics is a sublime zone to work in.
Introducing the staff of Print Decor
Lynne Lowenstein with Bernie, started Print Decor way back in 1985. Lynne continues her passionate pursuit of sourcing beautiful prints and art as well as affordable mirrors. She continues to play a vital role in managing the Print Decor team and has her fan club of customers, who admire her aesthetic choices in art and in custom picture framing design. Her background in business management in customer development and finance has contributed to the long term survival and expansion of this business.
Bernie Lowenstein the other co-founder of Print Decor. That's me. I work in seclusion most days managing our website and promotion. I also help with customer service issues. Business training combined with a "baptism by fire" in learning picture framing skills has given me a good insight into the overall management of Print Decor. We are proud to have successfully run such a delightful business for these many years and now feel proud to have our son and daughter and wonderful staff carrying Print Decor forward. Often on Saturday when I am not at the local cafe, I can be found having fun and with our customers and re-arranging our gallery showroom.
Lauren is the Print Decor shop manager. She has endless amounts of energy and loves helping customers find the right art and the most beautiful custom framing design or the perfect mirror for their home or commercial space. Lauren is an award winning artist with an educational background of a Diploma in Visual Art and Graduate certificate of Cultural Heritage and Museums Studies. She delights in seeing customers' art works to be framed and helps us decide what art prints should be on our website and in our gallery. It is refreshing to have a relatively young viewpoint of what we should offer in our gallery and custom framing department. Lauren also oversees the production of our custom framing and customer orders. Did I mention her endless amounts of energy?
Jeremy Lowenstein "Jezza" is our Website and Shipping Manager. As Print Decor has expanded, particularly with our on-line orders Australia wide, Jeremy has developed computerised admin systems that help us remain in control. He has educated himself extensively in computer technology and aside from Shipping he is our IT guru. I think we would still be using carbon paper and a Rolodex if it wasn't for Jeremy. And if you don't know what carbon paper and Rolodex are, you're probably closer in age to Jeremy than to yours truly.
Bianca Lowenstein-Nott is another of the "Lowenstein" clan. Lynne, Lauren and Bianca are the prime decision makers when it comes to selecting new art prints and indeed new products such as mirrors for our business. She excels in Framing Design, Art Print Sales and is a Social Media Maven. She also has an uncanny business sense, and has recently graduated from an extensive business management course. She was born with an astute business mind and has helped guide the business development since she was 2 years old!
Wayne is passionate about collectible art. He has been long involved in the arts sector for many a year, from the Gold coast, to Sydney and now in Melbourne with Print Decor. He has an uncanny ability to “see” what you may be searching for, and will go to great lengths to source it, be it an original artwork or a limited edition print. He also rides a mean Harley :)
Elana Saks Framing Design, Sales and the "Golden Voice" who calls our customers to ensure they were happy with our service. Elana has worked in the art and framing industry for around 30 plus years and is very well known in our local Malvern area. She has an arts background as a prima ballerina and ran a successful ballet school for many years. Elana is also known for her conservation framing knowledge and unique framing designs, with many clients working with her for many years. So many times a customer would walk into our shop and say, "Elana !! You taught my daughter ballet" or Elana "Did we not go to the same school?"
Kate. The style queen of Print Decor. With a professional background in the art of dressage, her passion for artistic perfection shines through in her uncanny ability to design custom picture framing and can be seen when she "magically" finds the perfect art piece or designer mirror for our customers' home.
Kit. The most personable framing designer on earth. There's little in the world of art and design that Kit does not know, with an educational background hailing from Cambridge University, Kit graduated with certificates in Architecture, Design and Art, so you can be certain you are in well informed hands.
Hugo. The print Decor mascot and loving assistant to Kate above. He meets and greets our canine guests and is the official ambassador of the Adam Cullen Growler collection, shown behind Hugo.
