Christina Twomey Art + Design is excited to announce our new partnership with Kyra Tyson Photography along with our 'LOOK UP' series launch of multi-dimensional cloud art. We've utilized the 3-D capabilities of layering epoxy resin to build 6 cloud-layers in our first of many pieces in this original series. In essence, the multitude of layers allows for the clouds to truly pop-off the wood panel so it appears as if you are actually looking into clouds up-close.
Our intention with this series is to provide clients colorful aspirational & inspiration artworks that bring happiness & a sense of calm to their spaces. We plan to partner with our top interior design partners (both in commercial and residential spaces), as well as our TV & movie set-design connections to bring 'LOOK UP' to homes, resorts, restaurants, doctors offices, your favorite shows & movie sets, and more. We will soon be launching 'LOOK UP' on Saatchi Art and Singulart, as well as with Griffin Gallery in Minneapolis, MN.

Enjoy day trips to Lutsen Mountain, National Parks for hiking or cross-country skiing, or up The Gunflint Trail. All are a short drive from The Mayhew Inn.
The 6 individual units that make up The Mayhew Inn are uniquely designed and built to be modular. Add to that common spaces that can be shared with larger groups, or experienced alone. The Lobby has a cozy fireplace, comfy seating for lounging, and a non-production bar with an icemaker for guests to enjoy. Entertainment opportunities in The Lobby include games for all ages, a turntable with vinyl from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and beyond as well as a large screen TV. The "Dragon Lounge" faces a majestic outdoor fireplace with a brick pizza oven. This cozy lounge is the perfect place for happy hour or a memorable nightcap.
Although The Mayhew Inn is downtown on the harbor front, it is graced with gorgeous secluded backyard courtyards and rooftop decks with breathtaking views. There are several grills on site for family BBQ’s when you aren’t enjoying all of the amazing restaurants that downtown Grand Marais has to offer. Then end your evening stargazing around the backyard fireplace.
