Artist and home:
Leander White, Kennetcook, Hants Co., NS
Background and Occupation:
Always enjoyed building things and working with wood especially carving. I’ve done a lot of manual labour and enjoy working with my hands.
Artist Inspiration and Influence:
I believe I was inspired by my father, as he made wood carvings and oil paintings and also enjoyed working with wood, like I do. I remember one time when I was very young I made a duck out of clay. I showed my father and he said it was really good, for someone my age.
Art Methods & Techniques:
I don’t think my methods and techniques have changed much except for trying to improve and make them look as real as possible.
I’ve had a lot of complements and had an article wrote in a small local newspaper.
