Hans Petersen
Back Alley Studio

At an early age artistic talent was evident. Hans filled his Sea Scouts log book with caricatures of his friends and their adventures.

The Petersen family immigrated to Canada from the Netherlands in 1952 settling on Vancouver Island.

As a young man, Hans utilized his artistry, imagination and love of wood designing and building furniture. This led to a long career in construction, design, building and project management.

The curves, recesses, angles, texture and colour of wood continue to inspire Hans in the creation of wooden sculptures.

He has lived in Victoria, Duncan, Kamloops and Whitehorse and is a long time Courtenay resident.
