About BristleWood Works

BristleWood Works creates unique wood art to be loved an enjoyed for generations.

Each piece is hand burned, carved, and painted by me. I create art that is meant for the person it speaks to, from my workshop to your home.

Hi there! I'm Shelly Lynn Hansen the artist behind BristleWood Works. 

I started playing around with a Walnut allow wood burning kit with all its crazy tips during the Lock-Downs. I was hooked! I've carved wood before and have done plenty of painting (walls, doors, cabinets) but this tool brought my world alive. I began to practice on any type of wood I could find and quickly began to hone the skills needed to start a business of my own.

February of 2020 I opened an Etsy Shop and began selling my work so others could enjoy it. I closed my Etsy in 2022 due to steep fees but continued selling my work through Facebook, word of mouth, and at a few in-person events.

Take your time to look through the Store and if you have any questions please feel free to shoot me a DM or a direct message via e-mail.  Each piece has an owner it is intended for, I just have to get my art in front of their eyes. So, if a piece speaks to you, you may be who that piece belongs to.

Each piece is unique just like we are. I don't like repeating my wood art but upon request I will but will tweak it a little so it's still unique.

If you are looking for something special to decorate your home or office, you've come to the right place. At BristleWood Works, we pride ourselves on creating beautiful and meaningful wood art that you won't find anywhere else. Our pieces are perfect for gifts, or as a special treat for yourself. We use only the highest quality materials and take great care with every piece we create. Thank you for choosing BristleWood Works.
