About Gwen Austin Studios


WHILE IT IS NO SURPRISE THAT THE FOUNDER OF GWEN AUSTIN STUDIOS IS...GWEN AUSTIN.  WHAT VERY FEW PEOPLE KNOW IS THAT THE COMPANY IS NOT EXACTLY NAMED AFTER THE FOUNDER.  THE COMPANY WAS NAMED IN HONOR OF THE WOMAN WHO SHARED HER NAME, GWEN AUSTIN'S GRANDMOTHER, GWEN AUSTIN.  DURING HER CHILDHOOD, GWEN "JUNIOR". LIVED IN THE SAME HOME WITH GWEN "SENIOR".  WHILE GWEN SR WAS INVITED TO PLAYDATES AND GWEN JR MANAGED TO CRASH MORE THAN ONE ICE CREAM DATE WITH GRANDPA, THE ONE THING THAT STOOD TRUE IS THAT THEY LOVED SHARING THE NAME.  THOSE WERE THE DAYS OF PUBLISHERS CLEARING HOUSE MAILERS. WHEN THE MAILER ARRIVED, GWEN SR WOULD HAND IT TO GWEN JR TO OPEN WITH THE PROMISE THAT THEY WOULD SPLIT THE MILLION DOLLAR PRIZE.   THEY NEVER DID WIN BUT GWEN JR PROMISED THAT ONE DAY, THEIR NAME WOULD BE "UP IN LIGHTS".   GWEN AUSTIN STUDIOS WAS NAMED TO KEEP THE PROMISE TO HER GRANDMA AND TO KEEP HER LEGACY ALIVE.
