When doctors told Joey and Darryl Simon that their son Jet’s premature birth could result in learning disabilities, the couple immersed him in the world of art as a means of helping him overcome any educational obstacles. Their tutelage and care paid off, resulting in an impressive array of paintings from their child at a very young age. Jet’s talent and creativity inspired his parents to establish 4Cats Arts Studio in hopes of unleashing the inner artists of other children as well as adults. The Simons accomplish this mission through hands-on sessions in mixed media, painting, and Artist Focus classes, which concentrate on the histories and styles of certain artists, such as Picasso’s cubism and Andy Warhol’s self-portraits of soup cans.

Awarded honours for store design by The Retail Council of Canada, Caya supplies modern photographers with an array of gadgetry, plus photography products and print services. After picking up a four-gigabyte USB flash drive at any Caya location, buyers plug the drive into their computer, digital camera, or brain to upload images, then drop the drive off at any Caya location for development of up to 250 4”x6” images. Using advanced printing and imaging technology, Caya can develop images with sharper contrast and more precise colour rendering than the traditional wet development of silver halide chemical printing. Caya's process blooms the deep reds, magentas, green shades, and '80s fluorescents that older modes often cannot capture, and its greater dots-per-inch (DPI) resolution capabilities can result in clearer images.
