Culture

I knew I could draw and paint from an early age. but I didn’t start painting seriously until nearing retirement from my regular job. My wife, Bev, bought me a Robert Bateman book for my birthday and I knew then that painting was something I would like to do. About the wildlife art I looked at, I said, “I can do that!”

In a world riddled with worry and wonder, it is the greatest privilege to escape into the wild unknown for regeneration and reflection. But what happens when this lush haven of perpetual seeming landscape begins to vanish? Can protection or reclamation save our safe and bountiful sacred spaces? Environmental concerns are very real as we see the tragic effects of humankind on the planet Earth.

As we start to collectively sway back into equilibrium, we should take a moment to note the things that we lost, and the things that we learned. How do we prevent our ecosystems from getting out of balance in the future? What are our keystone species? What have we done with our wolves?

My woodworking journey always starts with elevating the natural beauty of wood into distinctive, functional heirlooms for one’s home. I’m a stay at home dad and happy husband with a passion to create unique pieces out of beautiful, carefully selected wood. I honour the tradition of my grandfather, a French-Italian immigrant to Canada who skillfully and passionately carved his life and community out of wood.
