Custom Copper Art

Thanks for dropping in!

I absolutely love coppertooling. It is been a passion for
over 15 years.

The look, the feel, the challenge of manipulating it into something unique and beautiful.

When I first started working in copper I was focused on finding the tools and material, learning techniques and experimenting with different subject matter. Antique silverware, floral patterns, shells, hockey players, and oh so many fish. It seems endless as to what I can create.

I receive many requests for specific legacy-type pieces that will be passed on through future generations. So rewarding. So cool!

My efforts of 2017 involved creating 150 Copper Feathers in celebration of our magnificent country and inspired by the 150th Anniversary Celebration. So many people and organizations encouraged and supported me this past year. I am sincerely grateful.

I was honoured to be featured in Ottawa Life Magazine.  janfeb2017_gallery_barb-barkley_hr 

Our local community newspaper Newswest also did a wonderful article to promote my initiative.

Invest Ottawa provided a space in their lobby display cases to feature the campaign.

Savvy Company Ottawa invited me to participate in their “Canada Wines” event.

Devine Fine Jewellery at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier has also been generous to include the feathers in their exquisite collections.

So many people to thank for such a rewarding year!


Strong, proud and free.

And so…the journey continues and I hope it includes you!
