Hometown: Red Deer, Alberta
Based in: British Columbia, Canada
Jackie Chapman is a Canadian artist giving new life to foraged and ethically acquired timber through a combination of woodturning and hand-carving.
Her one-woman studio, Jak. Natural Designs, is based in the remote mountains of Interior British Columbia, Canada and Jackie's work is an intimate reflection of her surroundings. Heavily inspired by the natural world, her designs are an elegant union of organic, modern and abstract.
Jackie works with the natural features present in the wood to explore the tree's previous journey, allowing her creations to symbiotically tell their story as well as her own.
