Wood Carvings Using a knife, my birds are carved from basswood or tupelo wood. After the piece is carved to shape, feather groups are carved in and within those groups, individual feathers are formed. The piece is then textured with a wood burner and/or texturing stones to simulate feather detail and finally, painted with acrylic paints to create the soft look of the bird in the wild.
WOODCARVINGS - currently available Please contact me for price and more information about the piece
Cast Paper Sculpture A cast paper sculpture is one of the most exciting new art forms in the world today. It begins with an image being created as a 'bas relief' sculpture in clay. The intent is to produce a cast paper reproduction of the image in a limited edition of impressions.
Driftwood Art Mother Nature created beautiful pieces of driftwood - artwork in itself. By carving the bird and using the driftwood as a "frame", a unique collectable transpires which can be hung on the wall or if preferred, mounted to place on a table. Carving individual feathers, texturing and painting adds realism and life.
Recently commissioned  "Driftwood Art" I am known for my (very) miniature detailed birds. Recently however, I have taken on commissions to carve some larger birds, which at first was very challenging. I would like to take this opportunity to share these with you.
Xmas Ornaments or Gift Tags These christmas ornaments and/or gift tags are miniature hand made cast paper sculptures which are subsequently coloured in gold, silver, red, green or combination.
Decorative Pins and Earrings All pins are hand carved from tupelo wood. The feather pins are textured with a wood burner and painted with acrylic paints to replicate the original bird feather and maple pins are textured with leaf veins and painted in various fall colours.
Reproductions My resin reproductions are made in Canada and produced from my original woodcarving which I subsequently paint with acrylics The cost of applicable taxes and shipping will be added CLICK ON IMAGE FOR FURTHER INFORMATION
