Unique Wood Art in Bonney Lake



We are thrilled to have unique art on display in our Frame Shop. Stop by and see the work of Brett Shotwell. He loves to be creative and woodworking is his passion. His process includes choosing an interesting piece of wood and passing high voltage electricity over the surface. The patterns that appear are random and each piece of wood is truly one of a kind and unique.

The custom frame is a creation by our Frame Shop.
