Where do you source your wood?
I mainly use local woods that are sustainably harvested right here on PEI. For some projects that need woods like cherry or walnut, they are brought in but are sourced from managed plantations....I also love using reclaimed wood from unwanted antiques, old homes and barns. Many people who have planks up in an old barn or special wood they have cut or their grandpa did, will contact me, they love that it will be used for something special and beautiful.
It is a great bonus for the woodlot owners here to have added value to their wood before leaving PEI. That is what makes these pieces even more attractive, they help keep our rural life on this wonderful Island alive and thriving.
What inspires you
Living in beautiful rural PEI, I am inspired daily by the forests, little wild animals and birds, the sea and mother nature herself. My daily walks, through the woods to the small river behind our property with Labradors Jack & Hazel, cannot help but give life a sense of fun, reminding a person what makes life rich.
I also have a big warm farmhouse kitchen and love to cook and garden, hence my kitchen wares are inspired by the needs I have just hanging out there with loved ones preparing great local and natural food. So everything is `tested`you might say.
My pieces are made one at a time, with great care and attention to detail and finish. Some fun and whimsy in the folk art pieces keep things light.
