After growing up in south Peel, Winston moved with his wife to the farmland of Amaranth where he took up carving walking sticks, using material gleaned from his woodlots in Dufferin and Bruce counties. Upon retiring in 2007 from a career in urban planning, interior design and project management, Winston expanded his carving interests to include animals, birds, wood spirits, functional objects and Christmas-themed characters. Recently moved to Orangeville, he is currently membership secretary of Headwaters Carving Club. His painted Santa-themed carvings are available for the season at Dragonfly Arts on Broadway, Orangeville. [email protected]
