Meet the Artist
Barbara Finsness lives and works on the magical island of Bermuda, where she draws inspiration from the bright colors, island cottages, flowers and sea life of this pristine, semi-tropical paradise. Barbara creates her original designs in her home studio, preferring to create them by hand at her drawing board.
Wish a loved one a Happy Birthday or write a farewell to a colleague leaving the island with one of our Bermuda-inspired notecards.
From silk scarves to cotton totes, keep the island feeling flowing in your every day wear or when traveling abroad.
It is one of the rare gift shops on the island where the vision of the artist is so perfectly translated into objects, making the gifts almost pieces of arts. From the beginning, The Island Shop shop has been recognized as a great place for gifts, recieving numerous 'Best of Bermuda' awards.
Ever since this shop opened it has been a favorite of mine. I have not been disappointed either in the products they sell or the professionalism and friendliness of their staff. The variety is great and you will just enjoy browsing even if you don't purchase though I suspect you will find something that you must have!
The Island Shop enabled me to bring a bit Bermuda back home. Lovely handmade gifts feature Bermuda's unique cottages. My wife was delighted with the hand-stitched pillow and tea cup. A friendly staff is the cherry on this sundae.
