Today was one of those stormy west coast days we have had to embrace lately. This lead me to the warmth and always welcoming faces of the carving shed on North Chesterman Beach. I have had the pleasure of knowing Lyne for a handful of years now and she has always been gracious enough to let me photograph her at work. She is a true master carver; learning from and working with the late Henry Nola and master carver Joe Martin. Her creativity, dedication and insane patience is something one should aspire to.
