Debra Bernier - Driftwood sculptures

Each piece of driftwood is a work of art already, created through the

hands of Mother Nature. The earth, the ocean, even the moon and its

effects on the tides, play a part in the unique shaping of driftwood


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.”
