Artist Transforms Driftwood Into Spectacular Sculptures That Look Like Spirits Of Nature

Spread the word

Driftwood Spirit Sculpture Debra Bernier uses driftwood to create spectacular charming breathtaking sculptures.

Since a child, Debra loved the beach and nature.

Debra’s art is a personal expression of the gentle beauty she sees in nature. Surrounded by driftwood in Victoria and Canada, Debra studies each piece’s fascinating shapes carefully, which have been sculpted by nature & time. 

She uses curves and contours that already exist from the wind and waves on the driftwood to shape familiar animals or faces of people, creating gentle feminine figures and giving it that sculptured look.

Debra uses shells, stones, clay, and other objects to add that special touch to her creations. Her sculpture creations combine humanity and nature, and similar nymphs across the forests themed with motherhood and fertility.

She is inspired by the things she loves, such as children, animals, and nature. Some of her designs are incorporated with shells, which is a symbol of fertility.

What is driftwood

Driftwood is pieces of trees that have either been washed up on shore or floating with the current. Driftwood can be found along riverbanks, beaches, and at the edges of lakes by the tides, winds, or waves’ actions.

Specific measures are taken to prevent driftwood from rotting.

Trees play a significant part in life on mother earth and in the ecosystem. Trees take in CO2 and give out oxygen, which is essential for many life forms. 

In the times when oceans are plagued by plastic waste, driftwood is a reminder that natural marine debris can be useful, even helpful. It embodies the fragile ecological links between land and water.
