Paul Burke

Paul Burke

Paul is a B.C. artist who has been creating folk art sculptures in wood as his full-time work for over 20 years. He uses white pine from Vancouver Island, apple branches from Salt Spring orchards, and sometimes found wood from the beach. Paul has an especial fondness for animals, but his subject material increasingly has expanded to include human figures, automobiles, and bicycles, amongst other things. He is very proud of his wooden bicycles which are sometimes ridden by dogs and other unlikely animals. Paul and his artist-partner and wife, Anna Gustafson, own and operate Blue Horse Folk Art Gallery on Salt Spring Island, as well as Bloom Organic B+B, and have been part of the island community since 1996.
