Welcome.  I am a Canadian stone carver and painter living in Norfolk County, Ontario, within the Long Point Biosphere region, on the Long Point Causeway.  I carve soapstone and other soft stones using traditional stone and wood carving tools. I sketch and paint on location and in studio using pen and ink on paper, and acrylics or oils on canvas or board.

Long Point Art Studio

Long Point Art Studio is located just outside of the village of Port Rowan, on Highway 59, which becomes the Long Point Causeway. Please contact me for an appointment to see my work. It’s worth planning a day trip to this area, whether your interests are art, wine, antiques, a sandy beach, or birding.
