About the artist:

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. 

“My art strives to capture and reflect the misunderstood and under appreciated beauty, grace, and wisdom of trees. Working only with natural materials, my self developed techniques use tools that are accessible, and I constantly challenge my capabilities. Trees play a critical role to our global stability, and my hope is that the art I create stimulates the important evolutionary connection between humans and their environment. If my work persuades people to see trees and their natural surroundings in a different, more caring light, I consider that a step towards healing our wounded planet.” – Nick Leniuk
