Maple Barn Wood Turnings

I am a self-taught artisan who has dedicated herself to resin casting and woodwork. My husband and I were born and raised in a small town in Germany but in 2008 we both decided to start a new life's journey in the beautiful country we now call home, Canada.

Even though my creativity was present ever since my childhood, I never thought I would be using it to be making a living. After I graduated from school, I started an apprenticeship as a nurse and worked as such until my husband and I decided to leave Germany and to start our new life in Canada.My artistic journey started several years ago when I needed a purse. But I didn’t want your typical ordinary purse from a retail store.

So I decided to make one myself. During my quest to figure it out, I came across leather crafting and fell in love with this craft. I took it on my own to learn the techniques, skills and finesse of this craft all on my own.My love for the natural materials, their durability, and the possibilities that they offered to create beautiful and useful items, eventually led me to wood turning and resin casting, which is my new passion.

When I bought my first lathe, I had found that my new found hobby, had turned into an endless pool of ideas. Once more, I found myself hooked. I was learning by trial and error all on my own. I explored wood turning and what could be done with it. I like to mix materials, like different types of wood, seed pods, pine cones or coffee beans. Mixing these materials has allowed me to create beautiful, unique, and useful items that cannot be found in your everyday stores.

Whether we are hiking up in the Rocky Mountains or sitting in our garden, I gain my inspiration from nature and the beauty of the environment in which we live. What started as a hobby for me soon turned into a full time business for myself. One that I truly enjoy doing.I am a self taught woman. One, who has dedicated her life to her creativity and her crafts. Running the my new business all on my own.

From ordering an collecting materials needed to make my products to the final shipments to my valuable customers. All this done by one person, which would be me.
