Hi everyone, I just recently found this site and thought I’d say hi.
I live in British Columbia on Vancouver Island. I love woodworking but I also love working with metal and stone.
I am an artist. As well as doing sculptural pieces I also build furniture, cabinets, millwork etc.. I usually do my own design work but I am happy to collaborate with people too.
My favourite thing is to combine different elements in one piece…wood, steel, stone, copper….they work so well together!
I have been doing this “professionally” for about 15 years although I have a few years experience with post and beam construction. As well, I did my first life drawing class at age 13 so I’ve always been in to the arts.
I have a fairly large diverse portfolio and I’ll slowly add pieces as we go… also, I am a bit of a tool junky! lol
I have developed a fairly decent shop (wood as well as metal fabrication) but (of course) room is always an issue!

Looking forward to sharing ideas, tips etc. Always open to learning and if I can help anyone, even better

Cheers!

Hi from North Carolina. Always good to meet another wood worker and artist. I too am an artist (I think) My art tends to be in the form of knives, I carve the handles, wood and antler carving, furniture, painting, drawing and incorporating all of the above. I am looking forward to seeing some of your work.

Welcome! I was born on Vancouver island, but now hail from PEI. I am looking forward to seeing some work of yours, spifically all the multiagency medium pieces. Another who believes he/she who dies with the most tools wins advocate!

From what you have shown so far, I would love to see what will follow.
Great work.

Combining the element is not easy. Artist seem to have no problem with it.
