About Cara Jordan

Although I have no formal training, I have been creating and selling my art for more than ten years. From pencil drawings to portrait miniatures and oil paintings I have experimented with a wide variety of media and subject matter. Recently, I have become interested in pyrography since wood is a perfect canvas for images of nature and wildlife. This medium reminds me of my grandfather who was a folk-artist and wood carver in whose workshop I spent many hours as a little girl.

Pyrography (from the Greek drawing with fire) is achieved by burning onto a surface with a pyrography tool which looks a little like a soldering iron. Often called woodburning because wood is the most common surface used, it can also be done on paper, tagua nut, leather, and bone, whether done in monochrome or enhanced with colour. This beautiful drawing technique allows you to combine line and texture to create any image from the natural world or your imagination.

All wooden pieces are finished with UV resistant non-yellowing waterbased polyurethane.

Commissioned pieces can be done upon request in a variety of sizes.
