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:

Our local skating club hosted a regional competition a couple of weeks ago. They were looking for auction items, so, as my daughter skates with the club, I felt like I needed to put something in. This painting is about 18" x 24", acrylic on canvas. I didn't want to invest a huge amount of time into it as I was pretty sure that the smallish size of this competition wouldn't draw huge numbers of people. I based it off an 1940's photo of Carol Lynne by Gjion Mili.
