After a B.A. & B.Ed., Ted fell of the map for 15 years, teaching school in an isolated "fly-in" reserve along the coast of James Bay, in northern Ontario. This is where Ted learned to really see nature.
Well known as a woodcarver, Ted's wildfowl sculptures have won over 140 awards at competitions across Canada & in the U.S., and have been featured in dozens of newspaper stories, in magazines & on an episode of Regional Contact (CTV Ottawa). In the summer of 2014 Ted was invited to be Artist in Residence at Pukaskwa National Park on Lake Superior.
Flat art is a rather recent dimension added to this Newboro artist's repertoire. The canvas medium offers new possibilities - such as the ease of depicting a setting and establishing a mood. The seasons, weather conditions, geographical area, etc. can be difficult to portray in a wood sculpture.
Ted now lives, carves & paints in Newboro, a small village along the Rideau system - an Unesco World Heritage Site, & does archaeological work throughout Eastern Ontario. He is a member of the Rideau Carvers & Rideau Lakes Artists Association.
