There are 54 businesses and more than 70 artists participating in the city’s 2015 Art Walk running until Sept. 12.

One of the artists is Bruce Charbonneau, a master picture framer who also enjoys creating in many art forms including sculpture.

He says his sculptural piece on display at The Realm of Toys is part of his exploration into finding his First Nations roots.

He loves sculpting in various exotic and local wood and soapstone, alabaster and other stone.

Charbonneau says he is primarily interested in painting in all mediums, and experimenting with different and unusual substrates for his paintings and creations.

He also enjoys most forms of print making, including etching, lithography, relief printing and monotypes.

He studied toward his BFA at Malaspina College in Powell River.

He also took subsequent classes at Emily Carr University in Vancouver which left him with a lasting affinity for the impressionist period.

Charbonneau owns and operates Frame Creations by Bruce, where he combines his enthusiasm and artistry to create special framing for his clients.

He is located on First Avenue near The Realm of Toys.
