AN ARTIST WHO IS JUST "A CUT" ABOVE


Bobbi Switzer moves with the grace of a dancer as she wields her chain saw and creates her sculptures.

Switzer and her daughter, Nova, recently demonstrated their art form at the Maple Syrup Festival held at Saugeen Bluffs in Bruce County.
Switzer creates carvings from her own artistic imaginings but also takes commissions for special creations.  From blocks of wood, she creates carvings and has often been commissioned to turn trunks of trees into special lifelike pieces of art.
Today, from her farm at Cherry Hill, Switzer and now her daughter, Nova, continue to create artwork that is currently being sold in galleries through Ontario.  The work is amazing and is starting to show up on properties across the county.

"We attend many events such as this," said Bobbi Switzer, "I'll soon be competing in an international event against some of the world's best carvers and we have been invited to demonstrate the art of carving in many shows throughout the Province.
Bobbi carves as daughter Nova watches intently.

With thanks to the Saugeen Times
