I’ve always wanted my art to be unique, something special that people would refer to and say without question, “That came from the north”. I think my stained-glass snowshoe work, and the traditional drum making I do really send the message that our part of the world is very special. The uniqueness of our territory inspires me to create custom northern stained creations.
There’re just so many reasons why I love to create. If I’m working with stained glass I love the creativity, varying the pieces to make colors work together, getting the pieces to pop within my uniquely framed snowshoes and or varying northern drum frames, the way I had anticipated. It can be quite challenging with some pieces, and then with others everything just flows together perfectly. I love opening the packages of raw glass as the shipper is delivering them. My eye often see’s exactly what each individual piece will be used for, I can often see the final product within the glass sheet before I cut it.
I’m the type of person that doesn’t let anything stop me. If something needs to be done, then I’ll do it. This is a big benefit when it comes to being artistic, it allows me to think creatively when approaching anything. When it comes to creating my art, I strive to produce quality made northern themed pieces that reveal my attention to detail. I like my pieces to stand out above anything similar. I put my knowledge and experiences into everything I make. By acquiring one of my custom northern creations you’ll join the numerous individuals from all walks of life and from every area of the globe who already possesses a unique art piece reminiscent of their northern travels or aspirations.
