David Trant Folk Art.

My photo
Port Perry, Ontario, Canada
I was born in Toronto, where I went to OCAD and worked mainly as a painter. In the 90's, we moved East and I taught myself woodcarving. Nowadays, that's pretty much what I do full-time. I currently live and work in my studio in Port Perry, Ontario. Basically, I make stuff out of wood, using big, loud power-tools and sharp objects. So far, I still have all my fingers. For information about my work, contact me at dtrant@powergate.ca Also, check out the links below, to galleries that carry my work throughout the year.

New work. Hipster Santa and little wooden children.


 Kid sculptures are in cedar, and about 7-8" tall.


Hipster Claus. Only says "HO HO HO" to be Ironic. Was into Xmas way before you were.

Two new big Brook Trout.




Had a big block of basswood, so I've been making large scale brook trout recently.

This year I participated in the Scugog Studio Tour. We converted part of the garage into display space. The woodworking shop itself is attached to the garage and I spent the weekend meeting people and painting some new work. Lots of fun, great weather and I hope we see everyone again next year!
