Handcrafted Kards,  Stain Glass[My KWERKS] & Original Artworks

Deborah Sherman – The Artist
What exactly is a “kwerk” you ask. Well! In my language “kwerks” are small Stained Glass recognizable or abstract figures, constructed or deconstructed into a “kwerk”. They are just plain fun and I love creating them.

The kards were the birth of an idea I had to encourage people to send kards to family and friends. This ritual was slowly becoming extinct with no help from Canada Post increasing postal fees. The axe fell when my first grand girl Ava was born and I started to send out kards and treats to her. Then, the gift came, in the form of a simple kard from her with a scratch and squiggle on the inside that I translated into my own version of “I love you Gramma”. I kept sending and her Mom and Ava continued to send. Each kard made my grin as wide and long as the St. Lawrence River. Then along came my second grand girl Ella. The kards and pictures kept coming and going. Back and forth.

Simple, easy and pure pleasure between sender and recipient that I just had to start work on my new adventure, “kwerks and kards”

Thanks to the gift of love, laughter and giving from two amazing baby girls and now two beautiful young adolescents I enjoy the pleasure of sending them “My Own One of a Kind Handmade Kards.” Along with the hundreds that have been purchased and are now in the hands of ‘others’ with smiles as wide as the mighty St. Lawrence River.

’Tis Good Yes!….Indeed!

A.W. Bruce Sherman
Bruce was born ,raised and received his early education in Brockville, Ontario. He graduated from London Teachers’ College in 1965 and began a highly successful teaching career that spanned nearly thirty years.

During that career he continued to develop his artistic interests and abilities to enable him to actively exhibit in galleries across the province and in other parts of Canada. While he has experimented with a variety of different mediums over his career, he prefers to work with oil paints because they allow him to work creating sketches outside on location throughout the entire year. These sketches are paintings in their own right, but often serve as inspiration for the larger scale studio canvases which show further exploration and development of the “sketch.”

His impressionistic stylism depicts his profound pride in his Canadian Heritage and gives evidence of his wide-ranging travels across the Canadian Landscape.His faithful rendering of changing landscapes,urban and rural settings records his journey with a unique “joie-de-vivre” and optimism.
