Hi, I’m Terri, creator of The Little Red Door and owner of Terri Buckland Creations. Welcome to my online shop!
Things you find here are Love, expressed as art. I take inspiration for my designs from things I love. I especially love the beauty and scenery of the Maritime Provinces on the Atlantic Coast of Canada, my beloved home.
After moving to a teeny, tiny renovated cottage on Whynaught's Cove with my partner Christine, I became inspired to create art. There is a lovely shed on the property with a red door. It just called for a hobby! I decided to use the shed as a studio.
My main goal was to explore an urge I had to create. I started out painting furniture, and making abstract and watercolour art.
In January 2018, I picked up clay for the first time, and it was magical! I felt deep resonance, like clay and I had been friends before. Out came a little abstract version of the village in Peggy's Cove, a neighborhood close to home I frequently walk. I turned it into a pair of earrings for myself and that's how my journey with clay began.
I believe in living life from a place of love and being as “you” as you possibly can be!
My work as an artist grows and evolves as I do. I’m also a truth seeker, meditation junkie, and spiritual growth addict.
I believe we should let what we love be what we do.
“Work is love made visible.” -Kahlil Gibran
