Dene Celtic Art

Above: Myself and Shawn in his studio.

Last Friday, February 19, 2010, I had the privilege of visiting the studio of local Fort McKay sculptor and artist, Shawn McClure.

His rustic home made studio space was located in the backyard of his Fort McKay home. Shawn is currently in the process of relocating to a new space.

Shawn works in a variety of mediums including but not limited to sculptures in Brazilian soap stone, alabaster and wood, as well as being a skilled in drawing, tattoo design and execution and painting.

For more information on Shawn's works please visit his website - or send him and email at -
