Hi! This is a big step for me.......I have rented a studio in a very famous location for the summer 2014. The shop is small but is on a very touristy boardwalk. Expensive yes...! However it is location! location! location! It is in Cavendish PEI Canada it is very near the location of the Anne of Green Gables and Road to Avonlea sites so there are thousands of people coming to this location every year. So I am expecting to do some business! It will also lead to other venues just because of where and what it is. My business name is PEI Dirt Paintings and my aim is paint the beautiful green and red Island in all its glory.

Anyway I am pretty excited and looking forward to this new venture in life. Noting ventured is nothing gained........My focus is original paintings, some folk art and some Island curios. Everything hand made and nothing made commercially. If anyone has any experience with their own studio or shop please give me some hints and pointers! I will appreciate them all! I open on June 15, 2014 till Sept 30th.
