Artist's Roots

At Backwood, we hand select only the most unique sustainably-harvested slabs to design and create our premium, one-of-a-kind pieces. Using colour theory, interior design influence and inspiration from nature, Lindsay hand paints layers of pigmented epoxy onto each piece to create a realistic, multi-dimensional shoreline. Most of Lindsay's inspiration comes from the area where she lives, in southern Georgian Bay. Surrounded by hardwood forests and the rocky, granite shorelines of Georgian Bay, the area flaunts an incredible palette of earthy tones, brilliant blues and an incredible display of colours in the fall trees. We're proud to be woman-owned! Lindsay Russell, is a self-taught epoxy artist, woodworker and an OG of the epoxy ocean technique. Through experimentation, Lindsay was one of the first (if not the first) to develop and refine the ocean epoxy overlay and casting technique with wood that has since become a trend in the art and woodworking world. Lindsay loves inspiring others to find their own style and creativity when it comes to woodworking and epoxy art and has taught thousands of artists, woodworkers and students worldwide how to work with epoxy. Thank you so much for supporting our small, but growing business! The Backwood Fam XO
