Curator & Owner
Taranna Edge Gallery
Vivienne Oldham is a talented artist and owner of the Taranna Edge Gallery on the Tasman Peninsula, Tasmania, Australia. The Tasman Peninsula is perhaps best known as home to the popular historic site, Port Arthur, as well as, and other natural tourist destinations including The Blow Hole, The Devil’s Kitchen and Tasman Arch.
Once there were many galleries and tea rooms scattered across the peninsula, but alas, these have long since disappeared! Viv opened her gallery to fill the void and give tourists another destination to visit, as well as, provide local artists with an outlet to create and present their work.
Viv wanted to showcase her products to the world so to achieve this she realised she’d have to take her gallery online. She also wanted people to have the option to purchase works online so to enable this we developed an online store which she can maintain herself.
Built on WordPress architecture, the Viv’s Jewelry website provides the Content Management facilities of WordPress with additional Product Management and Shopping Cart capability. Viv can enter product information and images from her home computer while the Product Management system takes care of stock and orders. So all Viv needs to do is wait for the customer’s payment to be processed and mark the product “shipped” after she’s’ sent it!
We also authored manuals for Viv, so she’d know exactly how to use WordPress , add items to the Product Management System and process orders in the Shopping Cart. Each manual is fully illustrated with step by step instructions so Viv can refer to them whenever she needs to refresh her memory.
