Rob Walton grew up in Crescent Beach, BC and has lived in Vancouver BC, Kugluktuk Nunavut, Mudge Island BC, and now makes his home in Nanoose Bay, Vancouver Island BC.

As a self-taught artist, Rob has found that the journey to becoming a full-time artist has given him a strong sense of duty for his work. He has displayed his work at over 70 shows across the country and met thousands of people that have connected to his work.

As the connections to his work became more and more accessible the passion for pushing himself to a higher level of detail and a higher level of intention grew and expanded. Humbled by the response to this growth,

Rob has dedicated his practice to the art of patience and the pursuit of the subtle on behalf of those that support his work. Through reverence, nature is Rob's guide. The process starts by collecting selected fallen branches while out hiking through Vancouver Island and BC’s Gulf Island forests.

Making these artefacts is very humble work. Rob completely looses himself in the creation of these artefacts and enjoys the connections this work brings to the countless beautiful people along the way.

Rob feels very honoured to be able to create one of a kind art for a living. He selects each piece individually and allows it to ask what image to cut using a freehand design on the scroll saw. The work takes him to a peaceful and meditative place connecting me to the spirit of the arbutus, a healing and nurturing tree.
