Danielle Samson. Sculptor. Wood carver. St-Ilois, Quebec.  Active 2000-.

Danielle Samson makes sculptures of birds from ‘as found’ materials. Particularly driftwood but any root or branch that she comes across. She can be very tongue in cheek with her shapes and her colours and usually adds social commentary to her work. She seems to prove that any shape or form of ‘found’ wood can be made to ‘fly’.  She is self taught and can be found in her studio in St. Ilois on the shore of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Some examples of her work are shown below. (Taken from her Blog-site.)
