About the owner: Grates Cove Studios is owned and operated by Artist/Designer Terrence Howell & Courtney Howell, Newfoundland and South Louisiana natives who met in, traveled around and ate their way through South Korea. In 2009, they pitched their family in the historic site of Grates Cove, the birthplace of Terrence’s father, grandmother and many ancestors. Soon after, they bought the old school house in Grates Cove and in 2011 started Grates Cove Studios.
