Glen Henderson

Salmon-300x200Glen Henderson is a Port Alberni wildlife wood carver and stone sculptor.  Born in 1961 and raised in Flin Flon, Manitoba, he learned to appreciate nature while growing up surrounded by the beauty of the Precambrian Shield.  His father is credited with teaching him patience and taking great pride in workmanship.  These two traits are apparent when studying one of Glen’s carvings or sculptures.

Glen’s pieces reflect his love of wildlife; creating three dimensional, free form pieces designed to capture the animals at a specific moment in time.  Attention to detail is evident in his work.  His inspiration comes from nature itself, whether it’s a crab on the beach or a trout in a stream.


Exotic hardwoods from around the world, in addition to some local species, are transformed into creatures showcasing natural wood grains and colours.  Stone sculptures are created from soapstone, alabaster, and other interesting rock such as locally sourced granite and talc.





Sandy Terry

Awakening-BlazeSM-225x300Sandy Terry is an award – winning West Coast artist, Sandy Terry, draws inspiration form the abundant natural beauty of British Columbia. She is drawn to capture the simple elegance in the curve of a leaf, subtle shifts in color and the radiance of light as it interacts with form, all in a moment in time.

Dramatically representational, with loosely flowing brushwork and richly layered pigment to achieve greater depth, her vibrant renderings embody the essence of splendor and grace in Nature’s timeless canvas.

Her work is in private collections in Canada and the United States.
