The Crones' Nest Studio


Artist Yellow Flag

Artist Yellow Flag


Welcome to The Crone's Nest Studio! We - Marana and Elyn - are the two resident artists; doing what we love, and loving what we do!

Marana's Metal Madness creations are inspired by using recycled copper and other recycled metal and materials.  Marana's designs are mounted on a variety of wood.  Her art pieces reflect the themes of Gabriola:  whales, seals, fish, herons, owls and more.

Elyn creates Dragons of many varieties!  Wonderful soft-sculpture creatures with distinct and comical personalities are all waiting to be adopted by a special Human.  You will also want to check out her beautifully handcrafted walking sticks.
