Bruce Coney of Studio Coney was born in South Africa and grew up in farming communities there. He was always fascinated with the art and colours used by the different peoples in South Africa.
After gaining a degree in Economics and Marketing Bruce emigrated to Canada with his small family. They settled in Deep Cove, North Vancouver and Bruce went to work for newspapers in Vancouver in the Advertising field. In the nineties Bruce owned two newspapers in Vancouver and North Vancouver...
The story of Side Street Studio is more than the history

that real art should be accessible to everyone. It is
also the evolution of a business model supported by
principles of community-building economics.
