Debra Bernier is a Canadian artist who makes beautiful sculptures from driftwood. She is passionate about nature which provides her with the material that she transforms into fantasy sculptures resembling spirits of nature.
“When I work with driftwood, I never start with a blank canvas. Each piece of driftwood is already a sculpture, created by the caresses of the wind…Wood tells a story and I try to think of its journey while holding it in my hand. I extend or shorten the curves and contours that already exist into familiar shapes of animals or people’s faces”. – Debra Bernier
