Gunilla Matteau



Gunilla lives with her husband Paul in a 170 year-old home outside of Merrickville where she enjoys her passion for colours and finds inspiration from nature. Gunilla particularly enjoys collaborating with her husband by creating new designs and modifying shapes that have been turned on the lathe. This includes painting, carving and pyrography of otherwise plain wood turnings to

create colourful functional items to be enjoyed by all.


Much of her efforts have been devoted to painting native woods with unique shades of acrylic colours to highlight both the form and features.


Besides woodturning, Gunilla also enjoys creating with textiles and making jewellery. See Gunilla's jewellery creations under Jewellery.
