Good art should have to power to move you or make you feel something, and that’s definitely the case with Debra Bernier’s work. Bernier hails from Victoria, British Columbia, an unspoilt area with some incredible coastline and wilderness. Living in such an awe-inspiring environment, it’s no wonder that she sees magic in nature. Bernier’s sculptures are made from natural materials, such as shells and driftwood and tend to focus on women who appear to be the spirits of the trees and the seas.
