Growing up in an isolated part of northern Canada Maxx Duncalfe says “ I developed a closeness with the natural world as a young child”. That kinship and the connection to the West Coast of BC and Gabriola Island, where she has resided for the past 15 years, is the basis of her art. The patterns and textures of nature are turned into strikingly realistic pieces of art.
Maxx creates :
- Felted Cushions and seats that echo the smooth shapes of river rocks and surf -sanded stones.
- Ocean motif resin art on wood – creating charcuterie and cutting boards using the natural elements of the wood.
Maxx is a self taught artist, living on Gabriola Island , who works primarily with wood, resin and wool.
Surrounded by the beauty of nature’s elements, Maxx lets the pieces organically evolve, allowing each one to be it’s own unique voice.
