I am art.

Story to come..

Shop members

    Each piece of driftwood holds a story. When I use wood, I image this history, creating with the contours. These fascinating shapes have been sculpted by nature & time. My art is a personal expression of the gentle beauty I see in nature.

I am always happy to split a payment for a sculpture into three parts, to be paid over three months. Just let me know :)

How does it work?
If you'd like a sculpture on a three month plan, I'll set up a listing for you, with a picture of your sculpture, and your name, in the 'reserved sculptures' section of my shop.
When you're ready, any time within the month, just buy your listing. The price will be 1/3 of the total and state the month and '1 of 3'. The shipping fee will be on the first listing only.
Once you buy your listing, I'll send you a confirmation note and renew next month's listing. This time the title will say '2 of 3' (last listing: 3 of 3).
After you've bought your last listing, anytime within the month, I'll ship your sculpture to you! I ship in 3-5 business days.
Let me know if you have any more questions! :)



-All orders (with the exception of art cards) are shipped with tracking.

-If a package needs to arrive by a certain time, please let me know and we can set up faster shipping.

-For example, note that shipping to Australia can take up to 7 weeks for a foot long sculpture, costing approx. $45. +

-From Vancouver Island, where I live, to the States, the shipping time is approx. 10 business days. Shipping is usually about $28. to $45 for longer / larger items.

-Please note that if you have not contacted me to pay for faster shipping, you must be patient!

-Once a package has been sent, I have no control over the delivery time.

Additional policies and FAQs

What are “Reserved Sculptures”? Can I purchase them?
Reserved sculptures means that someone has already reached out to me to purchase the sculpture, and are no longer for sale.

Can you recreate a sculpture that has sold?
Some of the sculptures I am able to reproduce, such as the Abalone Moons or the Monkey Pod Bowls. Most of them are one of a kind as Mother Nature doesn't make the same design twice. Each piece of wood holds its own past and story and I sculpt in a way that will complement the wood.

Do you offer wholesale?
Yes! For those interested in wholesale, please have a look at the "Wholesale" option in my shop, or send me a message on Etsy and I can help you with your wholesale order.

May I use your photos for personal use?
If you are looking to use my photos, please reach out to me about this and we can discuss licensing and fees for the images. Please do not use my photos without permission.

Do you do commissions?
At this time, I do not do commissions. Most of the material used with the sculptures already have their own shape formed by Mother Nature. The essence of the sculpture is contained within the driftwood and I simply aid in bringing the beauty to the forefront. I get a lot of requests for commissions and while I would love to do custom sculptures in the future but at this time I am unable to, as I do not have the time I’d like to dedicate to custom orders as well as tending to my business.

Do you have a studio I can visit?
Currently I work at my home which is not open to the public.

How/where can I see your newest pieces?
Once a new sculpture is released the best place to see it is on my Facebook page. Like or follow this page to stay up to date!

How often do you make a new pieces?
Original sculptures are created every week. I also have a line of limited edition cast sculptures, listed in my “Sculptures” section on my Etsy website (

Do you sell in any galleries?
Right now I sell almost exclusively through Facebook ( and Etsy (

Do you have a website or Facebook page?
Yes! You can visit my website here: and view my Facebook page here: To keep up with new sculptures, products and announcements, follow my Facebook page, as I post regularly.

Do you teach or offer workshops?
Currently I do not offer any workshops or teach classes.
