Ottawa artist and carpenter Drew Mosley paints forest-dwelling characters encased in wooden bowls filled with layers of resin. Each scene is further embellished with found bits of flora and fauna: twigs, leaves, eggs, and more, creating artworks that walk a fine line between storybook illustration and sculptural dioramas. Mosley has an extensive studio practice and also pursues a wide range of building and woodworking projects around Ottawa Valley. His paintings have been exhibited throughout Canada and Greece and he currently has a show at the Ottawa Art Gallery through July 27, 2015. You can follow him on Instagram and Flickr.
