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:

I've been interested in photography since grade school, like grade 8 or 9.

One of my recent projects is an ongoing study of the view across the road from my home and shop. I go to the same spot on the the road and photograph exactly the same view. Only the season, weather and sky change. Many days the view looks pretty much the same, but occasionally it looks quite dramatic.

I'll start with on that looks pretty much as it did this morning, and I'll add more as time goes on.
