My name is Francois Thibault, (T-BO) I’ve been carving using a
multitude of mediums for the past 25 years or so here in Yellowknife
A few years back, a couple of die hard prospectors found that the
north had a bit more than snow covering it’s land. They found Ice !
Big, beautiful Diamonds of world quality. As an artist/sculptor, I
was selected to create the BHP Billiton’s signature peice for
Canada’s first diamond producing mine. I was delighted to see that
my work was chosen for the fall cover of the 2002 GIA’s publication
Today, I’m still looking for the next big challenge and still I’m
still hoping to move south someday to thaw out! Baby it’s cold up
here! I thank Ganoksin and everyone that shares their knowledge
openly, there are a lot of people that appreciate it.
There are still a lot of places where artist are forced to learn on
there own, I know, I’m one of them. The resources found here are
immeasurable! Bravo to you all.
