West Kelowna’s Pierre LaChance has some of his wood sculptures on display at the Okanagan Regional Library branch in Westbank.

There is a similar display of LaChance’s artistry at the Westbank museum.

LaChance started carving as a young person, while recovering in hospital after being hit by a car when riding his bike.

Carving became his lifelong passion, one that he enthusiastically shares with local organizations to help draw attention to their cause or to assist in fundraising.

His fascination with motor vehicles has led LaChance to create an array of wooden cars, trucks and motorcycles. He has done a 1996 Molson Indy replica car and Evel Knievel’s XR750 Harley-Davidson motorcycle. One of his current projects is a two-meter long Spanish galleon replica.
