Nickolas Leniuk’s passion for artistic expression was influenced by early years in Kapuskasing Ontario, where forests, and lakes provided an endless backdrop of untouched wilderness. A self-taught artist, painstaking attention to detail is required to complete each hand finished piece. 

“I have been creating art in the Kawartha Region for over 12 years. I create art primarily because I feel a constant urge to express myself by transforming earthly things which I see, feel and imagine into tangible objects. Coming from Northern Ontario, trees have always been an integral part of my life; my connection with them is multi-faceted and very strong, so they are a natural fit as central figures in my sculpture. I feel like I’m paying homage to one of Canada’s greatest renewable resources by making tree sculptures. It brings me joy to share them with people who appreciate their beauty and the contributions they make to our environment and our way of life.” – Nick Leniuk
