Art that Inspires

In our ever changing audio landscape I can't stress the importance of having a creative and inspiring space to spend the majority of your time in.  We all know our industry consists of long hours and the constant need for inspiration in such a fast paced environment regardless of the form can be a long journey.

Our home away from home that we like to call the "sandbox" is a big black bunker looking building at the corner of Eastern and Logan.  Step inside and your senses automatically explode!  Your eyes stumble upon a colourful series of abstract paintings, a stunning photograph, or some quirky original illustrations.    You'll hear the occasional boink and  goosh, amongst many other audible pleasures upon you're arrival.

This revolving door of local and international artists creates a visual palette that soothes, inspires and leaves you coming back for more.  I can't count the numerous times clients and talent comment and compliment the art that I curate at the studio.

What does that mean to you?  My hope is that it gives creative minds just like yourself the inspiration needed to create your next masterpiece!

Come stop by and say hi and see what all the fuss is about.   You'll be glad you did.
