Lots of stuff goes on in this shop, located in Lorette, Manitoba.

Primarily it's the building and repair of classic wood & canvas canoes, and the making of premium canoe paddles. I also do custom boat building, composite fabrication, and special projects. A growing passion of mine is the making of classical guitars, I'll post about that, too.

I want to be able to share with my clients the progress of their commissioned work. Later I started thinking that there might be other people who are interested in what goes on inside a wooden canoe shop operated by an artist and a recovering teacher.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me by email, phone, or by post. My mailing address is:

From time to time, I'm going to put up some photos of my paintings. I don't get a lot of time to paint these days, what with trying to earn a living, maintain my home, and care for my wife and three kids...

I have a lot of pent up ambition for more painting. It feels that if I start then I won't be able to stop. So, its safer for now to not start.

My son was involved in competitive swimming for quite a few years. As a parent, I had lots of time to wait and watch. At some point I figured that I needed to turn this into artistic inspiration. This is the first of a series that I plan on continuing.
