Gentlemoon Metals began in a garage in Minnesota thirty years ago when Tom Coyle discovered the alluring glow of molten metal. A former psychologist, he became a self taught jeweler and sculptor going to the University of Trial and Error and later graduating from the School of Hard Knocks.
Tom migrated to the Kootenays where he met his wife, Karen Wynn Dubord a talented artist in her own right. Together they fused their skills, different strengths and artistic approaches to form an exciting new Gentlemoon Metals. Both are inspired by natures’ grace, beauty and dazzling array of colours.
Gentlemoons’ unique metal sculptures are displayed and sold in many fine galleries in the United States and Canada.
