My name is Olga Oreshyna, and I would like to introduce myself as a Canadian emerging artist who is deeply passionate about woodworking. The source of my inspiration comes from abandoned pieces of wood. In my imagination, I give them a second chance in life.
All wood for my works was already used before. I hope this is my small contribution to green building. Rather than cutting down trees to get the needed material, reusing wood is just as good, if not better. It is my way of making a difference; simultaneously, I’m sharing a positive message on how we can recycle and reuse in creative ways.
My artworks reflect my contribution to making our fragile environment more healthy and beautiful. So much plastic, metal, concrete surround us in our everyday life. Creating these amazing wooden structures, I feel the huge energy coming over my hands.
