Sunday Evening Art Gallery — Debra Bernier

Debra Bernier is an extraordinary artist from Victoria, Canada.She uses natural materials, mostly driftwood, shells, and clay, to create amazing sculptures.These intricate pieces represent the spirits of nature as human fusing together with the natural material.“When I work with driftwood, I never start with a blank canvas,” the artist explains.“Each piece of driftwood is already a sculpture, created by the caresses of the waves and wind.Bernier’s talent lies in using the natural curves and depths of her driftwood to connect with that which most sacred in the world – children, animals, nature.  “The wood tells a story and I try to think of its journey as I hold it in my hand.“I extend or shorten the curves and contours that already exist into familiar shapes of animals or peoples’ faces.”More of Debra Bernier‘s amazing sculptures can be found at https://www.etsy.com/market/debra_bernier and https://www.instagram.com/shapingspirit/.
