HARDWOOD FRAMES

In 2007, I began making hardwood frames in my garage. I would find scrap pieces of wood and use my grandfather's tools from the farm to make frames. This proved to be a long and tedious process. In the summer of 2008, I decided to build myself a studio at the back of our property to launch my photo and framing business. I now have a beautiful functional place to produce my hardwood frames. My frames have evolved, in that I am now utilizing exotic woods from all over the world.


PHOTOGRAPHY

My journey as an artist began many years ago when I picked up photography as a hobby. During my travels I was inspired to photograph many foreign countries, and recently, I have started capturing images of local spots. My photographs offer a range of international sites; For example, France, Switzerland, Greece, Spain, New Orleans, Mexico, Jamaica, Cayman Islands, Argentina, Chile, Cape Horn and Bermuda. I have now completed a series of photography in Canada: Niagara on the Lake, Western Canada and the Gatineau Region. The photographs offer views of the French Alps, Geneva, the Eiffel Tower, the Greek Islands, the Tulip Festival in Ottawa and the Butterfly Conservatory in Niagara, Ontario.
