Artist Statement:

My love of paddles and all things “canoe” began when I was 9 years old and attended my first summer camp. As a teenager, I kept exploring the wilderness lakes and rivers of Ontario, and also began to craft the canoes and paddles that were the most beautiful and the most functional to get me there. Others discovered my work and so began my paddle making career those many years ago. My passion remains to equip people to find those special places in nature through high quality, custom designed canoe paddles, finely crafted from both traditional and specialty woods. Beauty. Function. My hallmarks.
