Creativity + recycling

Handcrafted Wood Wall Art Creations


Featuring recycled & repurposed components


Daryl Smith

My art builds on a strong commitment to the "reduce / reuse / recycle" approach to life.  That, together with my love of woodworking, drives the direction of my art.  I think of it as a perfect match: blending wood and recycling together to create pictures.  It's inspiring and it's fun.  I believe that passion is reflected in my pictures.

Welcome to the world of wood art.  Here, the natural grains and tones of wood blend with paints and stains to create beautiful works of art.

Using wood gives my works a natural feel that canvas works cannot duplicate.  Incorporating recycled wood in many pieces is earth friendly and fits my "reduce, reuse, recycle" philosophy.

Inspiration for my art comes from many places.  A stroll through nature may inspire a piece with earthy greens and browns.  Driving through a factory region may spark a piece with industrial grays.  A fading sunset may whisper of soft pastels.  Holiday celebrations may inspire bright, bold enamels.  My work has varied color palettes, but rovolves around a unifying theme of wood.
