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, unless otherwise stated. I use acrylic paints to add realism and life.
| ||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.|
| ||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.|
| ||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.|
| ||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.|
| ||The feather pins are hand carved from tupelo gum wood, textured with a wood burner and painted with acrylic paints to replicate the original bird feather.|
| ||My resin reproductions are made in Canada and produced from my original woodcarving. I either paint with acrylic paints for realistic colour as seen in nature or apply a "bronzed" finish for a more rustic look. The cost of applicable taxes and shipping will be added.|
