Ingrid Monteith has always had a passion for nature and natural materials such as rocks, minerals and driftwood. Her childhood was spent exploring the beaches and headlands of Northern Ireland’s east coast.

Ingrid’s first creative venture, known as Cedar Grove Originals, involved designing and creating lapidary jewelry. Later she began painting local wildlife on rocks. Ingrid also created a 4’ x 16’ mural which is displayed in Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital, Burlington, Ontario. This mural includes scenes from camping trips enjoyed in Algonquin Park.

Ingrid fell in love with the beautiful driftwood pieces and cedar roots in the Bancroft area. This inspiration led to the discovery of endless creatures and possibilities, in driftwood. This new, exciting art form has become Ingrid’s passion. Each driftwood piece is carefully collected to protect the environment. Using, acrylics, marine varnish and imagination, these creations are ready for display in galleries, foyers, patios or gardens.

Cedar Grove Originals are available at gallery gift stores, studio tours, art shows and by appointment at her home studio.
