Our collection consists of, hand-picked goods and gifts, with an emphasis on local, handmade and one-of-a-kind products. Our products are inspired by your summer vacations on Manitoulin Island where your days are spent on the lake and in the evening you’re cozied up to a campfire with friends and family.
The Big Lake
Art inspired by the Great Lakes
My name is Chelsea and my mission with The Big Lake is to connect people to the places and things they love through my art, designs, and products.
I started The Big Lake while in grad school to help cover some of my expenses and to give myself a fun creative outlet. As time went by, I spent more and more time painting and creating new projects, and decided to continue and expand The Big Lake’s offerings. Many of my projects and pieces are inspired by my life in and love of this special place known as the Great Lakes region. My shop name, “The Big Lake,” is dually inspired by my hometown along Lake Michigan and my current residence near the southern shore of Lake Superior. It’s such a joy and privilege to share my work with people from all over the world who share interests and connect with the images I create.
