ACME Animals

The creative force hiding behind "Acme Animal" is Canadian duo Don Gidley and Sue Parke. Those with an eye for the quirky will delight in their whimsical, clever, very fun, and functional sculptures. Sue's sense of whimsy, and Don's eye for geometry and line have merged in Acme Animal clocks, candleholders, and ornaments that come in all manner of animal or vegetable!

In a studio filled with sheets of aluminum, scroll saws, and rivets, Don cuts while Sue paints. She uses bold combinations of color to give the pieces life and brush strokes that she adapted from stage painting. In fact, the pair met while working on theater sets. All of their pieces are painted front & back, making them fun from any perspective!

The hardworking Canadian artists see their work as urban folk art, or folk art with an urban sensibility. Too much fun.
