Art Bytes | Ross Colby with Daniel Colby “Creative Professionals”
From Ross Colby’s workshop at 4 Sandy Hook Rd. in Uxbridge Ontario, Ross works custom building furniture for clients who have ideas of their own and are looking for someone to turn these ideas into reality. In Ross’s early years he worked with many species of woods. Lately Ross has devoted his time to building in pine, finding it a warm wood as compared to oak or maple. Ross’s other most recent interest is in mid-century modern style furniture, finding this new look for his work has been opening up a whole new interest.
Born and raised in Uxbridge, Ontario, Daniel Colby received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Halifax at NSCAD University in 2002. Since then, Colby’s work has been included in solo and group shows throughout Ontario and Montréal, as well as Halifax and Los Angeles. Colby’s work can be found in private collections throughout Canada, the UK, and the US. His work has been purchased by corporate collections, such as The Colart Collection. Daniel Colby lives and works in Montréal, and is a prolific and accomplished portrait artist.
