I have to admit, I AM rather difficult. I can be very demanding and often ask a lot of HER. I really put her to the test this past spring. One morning, I asked her to make me a giant, life-sized wooden octopus candelabra. SHE said "SURE!" How great is that? She had no reservations, didn't complain or ask questions (what's the point) and went out to her workshop and made it! He is a gorgeous fellow and he looks fabulous in the gallery window. We figure he costs around $45 per pound and that IS expensive for octopus, but you can't hold a candle to Seamus!

We are two Newfoundland artists who live and work in a wee, kooky cottage by the sea, in a tiny, little town called Upper Island Cove. We carve, paint, build things and run a 4 star hotel for cats. Life here can be hard and the ocean can get angry, but on sunny, calm days, the whales come out to play and it is the best place to be on earth. If you'd like to stop by our studio to have a gander at our artwork, we'd love to see you. There is a free cat with every purchase, and a complimentary lint rolling service as you depart. Can you ask for anything better than that?
