Recently completed ceramic fisherman sculpture.
Click on the picture to visit the page.


I now have my own studio and gallery.
Located in Barrington Passage, NS, just before the causeway to Cape Sable Island, beside JB's restaurant. It is undergoing some renovations right now, but it is still useable.

New releases on display include ...
The Snarl - pictured above ...
Nature sculpts for the garden ... tree bark, mushrooms, insects, etc.
Marble - "Weary of War", realistic ancient warrior.
Ceramic - fishermen and wildlife.
Wood - a few carvings.

In addition to wood carving, I also carve stone and marble, create in ceramic clay and plaster, and offer a few cast reproductions.

My subjects of interest are North American wildlife, commercial fishing, portrait figurines and figurative works.

Recent events include a carving used for the independant movie "Snow" which was released last fall, and a picture of "the Cape Islander" (a fisherman carving) is included in the grade 3 Social Studies book for the maritime provinces, as representing local culture. A zylophpne and a lythophone were created for the Shelburne Arts Councel, to be put on the local walking trails, and, of course, "Forgotten Heroes" the monument to dogs who died in war, commissioned by 11 year old Noah Tremblay and now installed in the Veterans Memorial Park.

I am now working in ceramics, and gaining experience in this medium.
I have also picked up some drawing nib or dip pens andam enjoying doing some painting and drawing in the line and wash style.

Located in Nova Scotia, Canada
