Belgreen Wood
Lionel Bedard

 Welcome to

I am a local artist, born and raised in Ottawa and have always been intrigued by wood. I am always searching for unique features in a variety of domestic and exotic wood to turn functional as well as artistic pieces.  I look for different shapes and forms to incorporate in my vases, bowls, platters and non functional pieces.  

My pieces have won various prizes including First, Best in Show and People's Choice at the Ottawa Wood Show competitions.  I have been a recipient of the Brian Larkin Memorial trophy for pure form woodturning.  For the past several years I have participated in The New Art Festival,  Art in the City, Westport Fall Colours Studio Tour, Sundance Artisan Festival, Maplerun Studio Tour, Fantasy in the Forest Art Show and Ten Visions of Joy.  My work has been sold through several galleries in Canada and the United States and has been presented as gifts by Foreign Affairs Canada.
