Biography: Doug is a full-time artist living on Vancouver Island, Canada. Since 1992 he has been involved almost exclusively in creating some form of art, including painting, stained glass, photography, pen and ink drawing, and woodturning. Wood sculptures, primarily made using a lathe, have been the focus of my work since 1997. When not in the studio, he can often be seen performing in theatre productions. Photography has been an ongoing passion for me. In 1991 he helped build a professional photo lab in Victoria, BC and with the advent of digital cameras and graphics programs my passion has never been stronger than it is today.
Prior to becoming a full-time artist, Doug taught skiing and sailing, was an ironworker, a driller and blaster in several underground gold mines, and delivered sailboats in the Pacific Northwest, the Caribbean, and across the Atlantic Ocean.
Creating thought provoking and inspiring works of art by combining artistic vision with superb craftsmanship is something he has strived to do for some time. Doug exhibits, teaches and demonstrates his unique style of wood turned sculptures internationally, and his works are in private collections around the world.
