Ted Stewart’s wildfowl sculptures, which feature the Birds of Ontario, have won over 140 awards at competitions across Canada and in the US.
Individually carved from wood, sometimes abstracted in natural wood, but often detailed and painted so realistically that they appear to sleepily drowse or to be ready to take flight. Birds of the water have often been hollowed to float.
Ted has taken his painting skills to canvas portraying wildlife and/or the environments they inhabit, including plein air landscapes. Ted was invited to be Artist in Residence at a national park and his art has been featured in dozens of newspaper stories, in magazines and on an episode of Regional Contact (CTV Ottawa).
Come watch woodcarving demonstrations all weekend!
