Beauty does not necessarily need to be tempered by practicality. When the two can be harmoniously brought together, the choice becomes apparent; there is no choice.

Make your dinner with art; kick your heels up on art; do your taxes surrounded by art; make more art with art as the means. Heck yeah!

LOCAL; handcrafted

Hello, neighbour!

M.A.Wood is a one-dog, one-human, (and some-pals) operation in Inglewood, Calgary's oldest neighbourhood.

Wouldn't it be nice to meet for coffee on 9th Ave or sit by the Bow River to put our heads together to design something fantastic?

Forever thereafter we can smile and wave if we see each other on the street!


Life is famously 'solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short'.

Humanity, of course, is generally regarded as a rebellious, contrarian, stubborn bunch of louts.

Let us embrace our humanity by being kind, friendly, compassionate, and together fight the arbitrary sorrow of existence by laughing at its patent absurdity!
