Nancy and Brian Street have combined their two forms of sculpture to create a striking form of artistic expression. Brian turns the burls on the lathe and Nancy augments them with carved figures and accents.

A subtle chemistry of line, simplicity and sensuality is the very essence of Nancy’s unique and personal style. By the age of 10 she was expressing her artistic sensitivity in wood carving, In 1973 Nancy moved to British Columbia where she joined a company devoted to training young artists in carving bc Jade.In 1984, Nancy opened a new studio in the bc interior where she not only diversified her artistic expression by using such stones as Brazilian Soapstone, Marble and Alabaster; but also she created larger and more dramatic sculpture.

Brian studied Photography and Graphic Arts at Ryerson College in Toronto, lived in Alaska and the Yukon for a time and eventually made his home in the British Columbia in the mid 70’s. Through his many skills and talents, along with his unique creative flair and eye for beauty, Brian has opened new doors as a flourishing artist. He especially enjoys working with West coast burls that feature beautiful colour and grain patterns. Many of the burls having been taken from the forest 30 to 50 years ago. His art is owned by collectors in the United States and Canada.

Brian and Nancy live in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. At one time they commercial fished out of Tofino in the summer months but now devote themselves full time to their artistic endeavors.
