MK Teaser Image


Mykola Kulishov, born in Ukraine and a PhD graduate in Photonics from the Institute of Cybernetics of Ukrainian Academy of Sciences, began woodworking influenced by traditional Ukrainian techniques. After moving to Montreal, he integrated power tools into his craft, creating intricately carved bowls from single pieces of green wood. Inspired by photonics and nature, Mykola explores paradoxical themes like contemporary versus traditional and lightness versus mass in his gravity-defying sculptures, showcasing his focused creativity and deep appreciation for organic beauty.


Sean Phillips


Sean's approach to carving mirrors his philosophy on life itself: guided by intuition and feel, he forgoes straight lines and perfect circles in favor of embracing the unpredictable nature of salvaged green wood. Each piece, be it a bowl, vase, or fine art, becomes a unique expression of this ethos, as Sean allows the wood to dictate its final form. With a meditative approach akin to conversation, he transforms discarded trees into practical and beautiful works of art, ensuring they live on with their own distinct character and personality.

Soft fluid organic lines are the foundation of her wooden forms, with the stark contrast of land and coastlines providing a limitless source of inspiration for fibre art. The spaces in between allow for continued exploration. Working almost entirely with natural products provides the link connecting all of her creations.

Tracey Cheuvront


I grew up in a suburb of Wichita, Kansas, got a degree in biochemistry, and worked in developmental biology research for ten years. I was effectively blindsided by wood in my early 30s. Prior to that I had no experience or even interest in woodworking, and I can recall hating every minute of the required woodshop class in middle school where we were graded on how identical our project was to the teacher’s example.  


Tracey Cheuvront


I was born and raised in Kansas but spent most of my adult life in North Carolina. I was a stay-at-home-mom for a number of years and also taught high school math for a while. I always believed strongly in setting a good example for my kids and demonstrating to them that everyone has creativity and artistic ability.  I didn’t discover woodworking until I got together with my husband, Tracey, but before that I had my own small business selling sewn items like blankets and plush toys for babies and toddlers. I was also an avid quilter during those years.
