Garnet McPhail was one of Nova Scotia's cherished Folk Artists. He was known for his whimsically carved creations - mostly animals. He was a kind soul, with a lot of character and charm. I once had the opportunity to visit him in his workshop, where he took me on a journey of each of his creations. I left his workshop that day with a piece of his delightful work....and a little bit of happiness. He has inspired myself, along with countless others to enjoy each day and to find happiness in everything that you do. Garnet, you and your whimsical creatures will be greatly missed!!!!
This is the handwriting of Garnet McPhail. He often included the date of when each piece was created.
