Andrea P., Studio On Tenth, Founder + Emma P. Studio On Tenth, Artist
Salmon Arm, BC
With a passion for giving handmade gifts passed down through generations, when Andrea saw her daughter Emma ‘s artistic talent flourish, she knew it was meant to be shared with others.
Located in Salmon Arm, BC, Studio On Tenth, white canvases of many shapes and sizes come alive with charming images created in studio by artist Emma. These images are carefully transferred to home décor items such as linen tea towels, pillow covers, market bags and aprons.
Where did the inspiration for your business stem from?
Making things with my own hands was passed down from my Mom and Grandmother. Once Emma ‘s art started to really come alive, I knew something needed to be done to share with people.
What is the best part of what you do and why?
The best or favorite part I do is meet the people who buy our gifts. I love hearing the stories of who the gifts are going to, where they will be used and making those connections.

What is your favourite component to your workspace and why?
I love to be surrounded by supplies…never know when or what you might use something for. I love to see multiples of things and I know one day the inspiration will hit me and I ‘ll use it…even after several years!
What advice would you give your younger self?
Always trust your gut and work hard.
