Hi, we're Paul and Janna Lafrance. Thanks for dropping by our little art shop called L’Artisan.
This store is something that took us quite a while to dream up and piece together. To begin with, we had a lot of friends who were talented artists and wanted to find a way to support them and promote their work for our community to enjoy.
Along the way, we have met dozens and dozens more artisans, who craft not only visual wall art but also metalwork, woodwork, jewellery, glasswork, furniture, and so much more. We’ve been constantly overwhelmed by not only the amount of talent that we are surrounded with every day, but also the vulnerability with which these artists create their artwork. Every handmade piece in our shop has been crafted wholeheartedly. They are expressions of hope in sometimes dark seasons . . . and love being birthed out of unexpected places.
