About The Island Shop’s Handcrafted Artwork and Gifts

The Island Shop exclusively features the original designs of artist Barbara Finsness, who has been painting since childhood and working from the inspiration all around her on Bermuda since moving to the magical, semi-tropical island in 1981.

Barbara partners with other talented artisans around the world who transform a variety of handmade products like fine quality linens, tableware, and Italian ceramic pieces by incorporating her artistic vision and style. The result is a collection of genuinely unique beach themed gift items that transport a little bit of Bermuda and a dash of international flair into your home, no matter where you live!

Need an extra special gift for someone whose home décor style reflects their deep love of the beach? Or, perhaps you’re looking for a statement art piece to hang in your own beach house? Our canvas prints of Barbara’s favorite Bermuda scenes and colorful, vibrant florals will delight you!

Bermuda Ceramics and Tableware

Artist Barbara has long been captivated by Italian ceramics, and many of her original Bermudian designs are painted onto unique tableware, including mugs, plates, platters, trays, and more.
Tea items are especially excellent ceramic gift ideas. Mixing and matching our color-coordinated designs with enchanting imagery of Bermudian flora and fauna, like lizards, sea turtles, palm trees, and tree frogs creates a fun tea table every time!
