Debbie and Mike McGinnis Art on the Commons Artists

Debbie and Mike McGinnis (Beavercreek, Ohio)
October 25 – 30

Debbie and Mike McGinnis have been creating art for decades side by side as a husband and wife team.  Their woodwork – although different from each other – demonstrates the natural beauty of each wood type, using a variety of carving and lathe techniques to create one-of-a-kind artwork

Of their woodwork, the McGinnis’ wrote: “We believe that the beauty found in wood should be emphasized in the articles we create, using traditional time honored woodworking methods. We carefully select wood for each project to show that nature is the true artist.”

Mike McGinnis has been a woodworker his whole life, inspired by watching his father carve wood while he was growing up. Debbie McGinnis created glass artwork for years before learning woodworking and falling in love with the material and techniques.  The two share a home and studio in Beavercreek, Ohio.
