I am a Canadian Wire Artist and Educator. My Wire Art is made in a very distinctive style that has developed over time. Everything you find here is hand-twisted by me without the use of power tools! While I find myself inspired by nature, I'll try my hand at almost anything. I love creating and make a wide variety of Art including Framed Tree Artwork and Bonsai, DIY Kits and Chicken Wire Garden Sculptures. Custom Art pieces are my favorite thing to do!
I am a small business based out of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and I began my exciting entrepreneurial journey in May 2016. I like to use found objects in my Art as well as recycled items such as Frames. The rocks and driftwood are collected by myself and husband on camping and hiking trips we've taken in our beautiful home Province of Alberta, Canada.
I am very honored to have participated in some amazing Markets and Artisan events in Alberta. Some of which have been heavily juried which makes me extra proud of what I've accomplished in only a handful of years. These invitations have included the esteemed Reynolds Alberta Museum Metal Art Show and Sale, Leduc and Wabamun Art Walks and I have installations in Gossamer Gallery in Wabamun, Ab. and Upper Level Gallery in Vermillion, Ab. These have led to some incredible collaborations with other Artists who have also become friends. I also sit on the board of non-profit organization, Hand2Hand, in support of Edmonton and area Artisans and am a member of the Sculptors Association of Alberta and VASA.
I teach classes in a number of retail locations in Alberta, ( these classes are listed in my Where to find me section) as well as my quaint little home studio.
I have art all over the world including, Japan where one of my Bonsai was given as a Sister City Twinning gift with the city of Whitecourt, AB and I literally smile every time I think of this!! More of my designs have found homes in Argentina, Spain, Norway, Mexico, Australia, UK, Scotland, the US and of course Canada!!
Most recently one of my Chicken Wire Sculptures was purchased by the City of Spruce Grove as part of their Public Art Installations.
I believe very strongly in giving back to our communities and have donated items to the Matt Rad foundation for Valour House, the Pathfinders of Canada, The Sexual Assault Center of Edmonton, Shred for Shane in support of the Golden Search and Rescue association, which is run strictly by volunteers and Amy's House.
I designed and developed and hold registered copyright to the Kits and classes you see listed here on my website.
I've been invited by Indigo/Chapters Canada to teach my Wire Art classes in Sherwood Park, Ab. as part of a pilot project in Western Canada. These classes have been well received by Indigo customers and its seriously cool to be asked to participate in this project!!
If you are from outside of Canada or the USA, and would like to purchase some of my Art, simply contact me and I can make arrange to get your Art pieces to you!
Thank you so much for taking the time to pop by and see what I am about!
