My name is Olga Oreshyna and I would like to introduce myself as a Canadian emerging artist who is deeply passionate about woodworking. The source of my inspiration comes from abandoned pieces of wood. In my imagination I give them a second chance of the life. All wood for my works were already used before. I hope this is my small contribution to green building. Rather than cutting down trees to get the needed material, reusing wood is just as good if not better. This is my way of making a difference, at the same time I’m sharing a positive message on how we can recycle and reuse in creative ways. My artworks reflect my contribution to make our fragile environment more healthy and beautiful. So much plastic, metal, concrete surround us in our everyday life. Creating these amazing wooden structures I feel huge energy coming over my hands.
Looking for a custom piece of art? You may want to invest in stunning one of a kind original artwork instead of the cheap mass-produced fake pieces from big chain stores. Whether you are already familiar with purchasing original artwork or not, not everybody knows that it’s always possible to commission a custom artwork directly from an artist. It’s a great option if you are looking for something unique and special.
This set was custom made for a specific location and needs. The client wanted to display something beautiful on a blank, tall wall that leads to a loft alongside their floating stairs and also to benefit for sound dampening, to meet both aesthetical and acoustical needs.
Each single piece of wood is cut, shaped, detailed, carved, sanded and assembled by hand with passion, love and care. The assemblage is almost done and next step is a painting and fine finishing. Turquoise was chosen as colour preference.
The first layer is always a wood protection. Acrylic painting is a next step. And then, hand sanding is applied to enhance wood grains and knots in order to show the real beauty of wood and emphasize the structure of shape formations. Last layer is fine finishing to protect the sculpture itself.
One of my favourite part to get pictures from a happy and completely satisfied clients. Great to see the pieces in their new home.

The unique wall hanging sculptures made entirely from recycled wood, designed and created to inspire audience to see things in a different way and to share a positive message how we can reuse and recycle in creative way. Recycling is the future, our mother Earth have limited resources and we have to learn how to REuse, REcycle and Reduce our materials and products consumption in order to decrease our footprint.
I do some ‘non-traditional art’, made from recycled wood that has been abandoned by industries. There is a great pleasure in giving the wood a second life. In my belief, wood retains the spirit of the living tree and I just try to honour it. Much of my inspiration comes from the wood itself. Collecting wood simply for its natural beauty is the start of many of my works. Old wood has scratches, cracks, knots and other imperfections that are similar to real life. Every piece of wood is like a person, with its unique character, challenges and strengths.
In today’s busy digital world, all of us understand the importance of maintaining a conection with nature. I strive bringing the elements of outdoors into the indoor space, and creating art from my ultimate source of inspiration: my love of nature.
These times are strange and unsettling. The whole world is on pause. A time for reflection and an opportunity to look inward. A time to take notice and appreciate the simple things in life. A time to be grateful for what we have …. and for those around us that help make our days a little bit better
Immersing myself in the making of something is incredibly calming. It’s something I’m really trying to do more regularly as the restlessness of self-isolation and social distancing kick in.
