These marquetry masterpieses are done by Kevin Dunlop from Haliburton, Ontario, Canada.
Kevin Dunlop started his apprenticeship in marquetry and furniture making in 1980.
He studied at:
Conestoga College – (The Ontario Woodworking Centre) Manufacturing Technician of Wood Products
Sir Sanford Fleming College – (The Haliburton School of the Arts) Various coarses in drawing and design
Herbert Lappins – Apprenticeship in the art of marquetry.
His pictorial scenes in wood are veri detail, for example the life size “Snowy Owl” features over 1000 pieces of wood and sand shading to give the effect of shadows between the feathers.
Attempting to express the beauty of the Haliburton highlands and the Algonquin area is the inspiration for the landscapes and wildlife that are found in Kevin’s marquetry.
Kevin said: “The essence of Canada, is not in our cities but a few steps off the beaten path.”
