Wood, Ink, Paper

I create contemporary wood carvings.  I’m inspired by minimalism and influenced by nature, geometry, and form. I began my practice in the semi-cold (there have been many other much colder) Canadian winter of 2015.

Mentally, I find wood carving interesting because it requires a process of conscious deletion; I can’t put back what I carve away, so I have to be careful with how I use my tools.

My work and preparatory illustrations can be seen below and on Instagram @wikaeo.
