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.
