1185 Woodley Ghyll Rd., Victoria, BC (Metchosin)
Much of Bert's work is heavily influenced by his love of the West Coast, especially the ocean. Growing up, camping across North America, and particularly here on Vancouver Island, lead to hours exploring the outdoors and oceans. Living in Metchosin, with his wife, Almut and their 4 rescue dogs, Bert works out of his shop on their property, near Matheson Lake. Working mainly with metal, he incorporates just about any material he can get his hands on. "I think learning to work with as many materials as you can gives you the freedom to get what's in your head out to the world." Bert's work can be found in homes, gardens and businesses locally and around the globe.
