I am a jeweller and sculptor who carves original designs from a variety of natural materials.
Wood was my original medium, but my palette has expanded to include antler, bone, laminated wood, metal, and found objects.
My subject matter includes wildlife, the human form and all things marine.
My work ranges from traditional representative to a more free-flowing expression. While I remain devoted to my sculptural pieces, I also appreciate the spontaneity and accessibility of my jewelry creations.
Sculpture and jewelry are made of locally sourced beef bone, naturally shed antler and wood. I enjoy the artistic challenge presented by the structure and dimensions of these renewable resources. The blend of the traditional and modern, both in terms of technique and material, is a constant inspiration.
Sculpture bases include driftwood, found objects and up-cycled materials.
My newest work explores textures and patterns in carved and charred plywood sculptures
Originally from Prince Edward Island, I have lived and worked in Newfoundland, the Northwest Territories, and Nova Scotia, Manitoba, and have now returned home to PEI. I trace my strong environmental ethic to my degree in biology and my work as a National Park Warden.
I am a carver who creates original jewelry and sculpture from a variety of natural materials.
I have been carving for almost 30 years. I began working in wood, but was exposed to other traditional materials while living in Canada’s north and now work mainly with bone and antler. I use locally sourced beef bone and naturally shed caribou, moose, deer and reindeer antler.
My subject matter includes wildlife, the human form and all things marine. My sculptures are mounted on brightly painted driftwood bases which provide a striking contrast to the earthy hues and highly polished finish of the bone and antler carvings.
I have lived and worked in Newfoundland, the Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, and Manitoba, but returned to Prince Edward Island 4 years ago. I now live with my husband and our dogs in a lovely old Island farmhouse. My workshop is only steps from the kitchen door.
For 15 years we lived in Manitoba and the entire time I schemed about moving back to PEI. I carved a little. (Very little.). I taught snowboarding, I painted houses and finally I settled in to use my science degree, as an environment officer with Manitoba Conservation. But mostly I schemed about leaving…
In 2016 we quit perfectly good jobs, sold the house and moved to PEI. And here we are in Brackley Beach. We live in a beautiful 185 year old farm house. It’s near the national park and the north shore beaches. I have a workshop to die for. I paint houses and carve in equal amounts.
