Vendor Profile: North Birch Grove

North Birch Grove is the home of Fine Art Photographer + Designer A.V Wakefield to showcase + share her innovative artwork + products. A.V creates original photographic prints handcrafted into glossy salvaged wood blocks, magnets, coasters on wood, stationery + provincial shaped wood prints. A graduate from the Alberta College of Art + Design with a Bachelor's in Design + Photography, A.V began selling her work at local markets shortly after graduating, making the move to larger events for a number of years across Canada, building her brand + client base. Transitioning back to smaller local events within in western Canada for 2016 will allow her the time to focus on creating larger scale one of kind works in addition to her existing line of retail products. All magnets, coasters, glossy resin coated blocks + packaging of products are created in her home studio in Canmore + a partnership with a local printer allows for production of her wood prints. As a creative living in a mountain landscape with an affinity for the open landscapes of our Canadian prairies + urban settings world wide, A.V’s body of work appeals to many + her Saskatchewan shaped province magnets are worth checking out in person! A.V lives in Canmore Alberta in the Canadian Rockies. She owns more cookbooks than cameras, has a trusty sidekick Metsä the blue heeler and believes in exploring nature all 365 days of the year.
