Timothy ‘Bjorn’ Jones is an award-winning artist best know for his wooden sculptures. Bjorn chooses to work without power tools, allowing the tree to have a voice in the process.  By presenting the natural beauty of trees in a way rarely seen, Bjorn challenges how we interact with trees in our industrialized society.

Bjorn's work has been featured on CBC News, CTV News, local newspapers and international publications and his exhibitions include catalogued work at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. Bjorn has studied at the University of New Brunswick, Oulton College and The New Brunswick College of Craft & Design, where he is currently an instructor.
