Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to the questions we get asked most often.

Where can I find you?

My studio, gallery and dress shop is located at 18 James Street in downtown Parry Sound. In July and August I can also be found at the Gravenhurst Farmers Market on Wednesdays and the Rosseau Farmers Market on Fridays.


When are you open?

Our current hours are from Monday to Saturday from 10am-5pm. We always keep our Google business listing updated with our current hours.


Do you sell your clothes online?

Not in the traditional online store way. I purchase all of my fabrics in smaller quantities to keep my designs fresh and original. That said, I regularly sell and ship items to my existing customers; as long as I have your details on hand I’m happy to send you pictures of what I have or custom make something for you. Contact me if you’re interested.


Do you sell other work online?

I do! The best place to find my work for sale online is on the 18 James Street web site. We ship across Canada and the US.


What forms of payment do you accept?

At the shop I take Visa, Mastercard, debit, cash and cheque. At the markets I accept payments by Square and cash. I can also accept payment by eTransfer if agreed upon in advance.


Can you deliver my item?

As a general rule we do not deliver items, but we do make exceptions for larger items like paintings. We can ship items across Canada via a variety of carriers.


Do you accept painting commissions?

I sure do! If you’re interested in having a landscape painting done for yourself or as a gift, please drop by the shop or get in touch by email. Commissioned paintings can be as small as 8×10 or as large as you require and are priced on a standard square inch basis. Click here to contact us about commissions by email.


Do you teach painting classes?

I do! My step-by-step classes are scheduled in advance throughout the year and you can register for them at the shop, by phone or online. I also offer a series of Georgian Bay Painting Cruises in the summer, and have started running longer studio days periodically. Please see the 18 James Street web site for a current list of all upcoming classes.


I still have questions! How can I reach you?

Feel free to send me an email or call 18 James Street at 705-996-1414. If you leave us a message Dan or I will get back to you as soon as possible.
