Gentlemoon Metals began in a garage in Minnesota 30 years ago when Tom Coyle discovered the alluring glow of molten metal. A former psychologist, he became a self-taught jeweler & sculptor going to the University of Trial & Error and later graduating from the School of Hard Knocks. Tom migrated to the Kootenays where he met his wife, Karen Wynn Dubord who was a talented artist in her own right. Together, they fused their skills, different strengths & artistic approaches to form an exciting new Gentlemoon Metals. They are both inspired by nature’s grace, beauty & dazzling array of colours. Natural scenes, including animals and sea life are common themes in their work Their unique metal sculptures are displayed and sold in fine galleries in the United States and Canada.
