Directions: Saint Joseph Road runs west off Angeline Street in the north end of Lindsay.
My art is called wooden Intarsia. It is the art of cutting, shaping, and texturizing many different species of wood to create a picture like a jigsaw puzzle.
Some of the species of wood that I use are quite interesting. Such as Nogal (Peruvian Walnut), Bloodwood, African Padauk, Pau Amerillo & Australian Lacewood.
I also use many local woods, such as White Spruce, Western Red Cedar, Eastern White Cedar, Aromatic Cedar.
