Susan Love is a seasoned business owner and the executive director of the Newcastle Area Chamber of Commerce. In her quest to bring people together to create a more dynamic downtown area and to share her love of art, she decided to open an evening studio and offer canvas painting, draft classes, and art gallery and “ZenPen” - a relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. She also offers a space for local and regional artists to consign their work and has an online store to sell items. Susan leased a space on Main Street, remodeled the interior, and opened for business in September 2015. She worked with Susan Jerke and Jim Drever, regional directors of the Wyoming Entrepreneur SBDC and Market Research Center for assistance with her website. The business was funded with personal investment.
