The story behind the name... because everyone asks!
Alison & Tone - Vancouver Island
When my son (Tone) was little I used always call him “Sunshine” so when I started the company I wanted him to be a part of it so I spelt the name SONSHINE. I also wanted to allow the possibility of peoples SON’s to work for us too. The "girls" was added because when I painted for someone else I inevitably encountered people who demanded to talk to the male boss or who thought women couldn’t work in the trades. I wanted to avoid that stereotype. And it worked. I have amazing clients who support Sonshine Girls and women working alongside men in the trades.
It has been a great journey.
...and because we probably should talk about this stuff!
