Meet Terri

Hi, I’m Terri, creator and owner of The Little Red Door. 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 beautiful renovated cottage on Whynaught's Cove with my wife Christine, I became inspired to create art. There was 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, as well as 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!”

 I’m also a truth seeker, meditation junkie, and spiritual growth student. My work as an artist grows and evolves as I do.

As part of the creative process, I strive to remain authentic, intuitive, and vulnerable.

I believe we should let what we love be what we do.

I love every part of my beautiful business. Thank you so much for stopping by!
