The Mahoods were the Featured Sculptors in Vancouver's 2001 P.N.E. Prize Home, during their big fall fair and exhibition. Sadly, 9/11 happened, and all their sales and contracts cancelled.
The Mahoods sold their Denman Island paradise and moved to Lone Butte, near 100 Mile House, BC, buying a big commercial building and opening their Gallery. Most big sales still happened during sales trips to Vancouver and Whistler, so when Family Called, Teddy and Laurie, moved to the beautiful Kootenay region of British Columbia and live in the remote community of Kingsgate, near Creston.
They both do design. Teddy does most of the carving, burning, wire brushing and sanding, and Laurie does final carving and cleaning and adds color to their creations with paint and stain.
They enjoy a quiet life surrounded by nature, with their Great Danes. Shown here are 3 generations with Alixx (mantle), Apache Sioux (harlequin) and Miss Kitty (black mantle). Now and then, they raise a litter of puppies. New puppy, Coco joined them in May, 2018.
