Ian Byrne 

Originally from Co Wicklow Ireland, I immigrated to Kansas City USA in 1987. I started my own custom woodworking company in 1990. Specializing in custom furniture, cabinets of all sorts and also plantation shutters. We have created many beautiful pieces over the years. In creating these fine pieces we also created a pile of small unusable pieces of what would normally be titled “trash wood” or “off fall”.

I started “Off the Floor Art” to reclaim and use these pieces of wood to create one of a kind wall art.

My hope is when people see my art; it will make them happy and content knowing that the beautiful and natural elements they are viewing could have easily ended up in the trash.

Creating and finishing these pieces make me extremely happy.

I get my ideas and inspiration from people, architecture, paintings, music and the air that I breathe!

I am also very fortunate to be enjoying a wonderful successful career in the music business as the singer with a Kansas City based group called The Elders.
