After renovating an 1850s cottage in Wellington 20 years ago, Trish was left with stacks of the old wood lathe used in the home’s lathe-and-plaster walls. The hardwood lathe was strictly utilitarian, but the craftsmanship and effort that went into making it was striking: Remarkably straight and strong, it clearly bore the marks of the primitive saws used to produce it.
Trish creates her distinctive artworks mixing this lathe with other vintage and newer woods, colouring them with dyes, inks and paints.
She had a long and happy career as a journalist with The Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail and The Canadian Press. She lives with her husband in Wellington.
