Heidi Barkun's Profile
I have been making artwork that uses recycled wood and found objects for the past three years. During this time, I have noticed an excited public reaction to the textures, colours as well as the green consciousness of the art. I have been framing my paintings for over 10 years and have made frames for clients' artworks. I have also designed and created custom furniture for a high-end clientele.
I have an inventory of wood found in different parts of the city during the past few years and I'm always on the lookout for more. Spring and autumn are especially fruitful seasons for finding materials since many home owners decide to renovate. I rely on my artistic eye to find the wood as well as my knowledge of woodworking to design the collections based on the wood available.
I hope you enjoy my creations so far. More are on the way!...
