Deanna Bartholow

Deanna Bartholow began her career as a wood carver 30 years ago after having painted for many years. Her wood carvings depict native Alberta birds and are so exquisitely constructed that they take on life-like qualities. The wood used is Tupelo gum from the swamps of the southern U.S. as this particular soft wood carves very well and retains the intricate details that give the work a tactile characteristic.
