STOP 8 – VAN ZANTEN STUDIO

portshell250@gmail.com

I was born in Pembroke, Ontario.  During my career teaching special education in Ottawa, my ‘spare-time’ passion was woodworking.

During those years, I made Nativity sets, wooden toys, money banks and educational games.

After retiring from teaching, my wife Marilyn and I moved to Prince Edward Island.  My woodworking passion continued and we opened up a craft shop where we could both share our individual passions together.

I have always had an interest in birdhouse construction.  During the years in P.E.I., making birdhouses became my favourite pastime.

I now reside in Perth, Ontario and continue to enjoy my newest hobby.
