When you think of driftwood, what comes to mind? For most people, it’s thought of as boring, dull and pretty much useless, but one person is here to show everyone that it can be so much more! Canadian artist Debra Bernier has an astonishing talent when it comes to using driftwood, shells and clay to create incredible sculptures. Bursting with detail and undeniably unique, Debra’s works of art are something to be admired. Take a look and prepare to be hugely impressed!

If only we had half the talent for sculpting Debra possesses!
Debra takes her inspiration from the things she feels are most important in life… children, nature and animals. The attention to detail is incredible and the range of designs is phenomenal. Each sculpture leaves you impressed, just when you think Debra can’t get any better, you simply look at the next image! If you’re someone who loves what you’ve seen, Debra’s amazing creations do go up for sale, but they shift very quickly. Keep going for more beautiful sculptures!
