Artist Statement

I have lived in rural Eastern Ontario all of my life , and have always had a love of nature in its natural state. When I was a teen harvesting firewood to heat our home I began to develop a fondness for wood and finding its hidden beauty. In secondary school I spent some time in my woodworking class learning the basics of Woodturning which I greatly enjoyed. After building my own lathe, I spent numerous days developing my own style and form that I use to this day, but with a more perfected shape and finish.

I started my own business in 1992 and greatly enjoy creating every day. I now have the pleasure of teaching my son Curtis the art of Woodturning and carving, he also has the love of wood and truly appreciates the beautiful shapes that truly emerge from wood in our studio, natures art gallery!
