    "a piece of fine craftmanship"


Mark A Taylor


Mark is a local artist & craftsman living, working and teaching on Hilton Head Island, SC.  Mark and his wife Ginny own IDEA Studio, an instructional art studio located on the island.

The Taylors moved to Hilton Head Island in 1985 to join the family business which at that time was Shoreline Rentals, a property management and vacation rental company.  Up until that time Mark had been involved in residential construction and fine woodworking in the boat industry.


After 18 years in the rental business the family sold the company so their parents could retire.  Mark went back to his roots and opened a custom cabinet shop.

In 2010 the building economy was nearly non existent on Hilton Head, so they closed the cabinet shop to the public and opened a new property management company specializing in long term rentals and the instructional art studio, IDEA Studio.  Both companies are still flourishing today.
