Sneak peek into our next issue, blog Q+A with James Rackstraw, Ninja Monkeys Metal Art & All Custom Designs, Matsqui, BC Canada

Leading up to our second issue going live mid-November, we’ll be sharing some sneak peeks into our featured people articles, so you can get a little flavour and feel of who they are, and get a glimpse at what will be coming up in our next issue!

Your name and company:
James Rackstraw
Ninja Monkeys Metal Art & All Custom Designs

Matsqui/Mission, BC.


What do you do, quickly, what’s your “elevator pitch”?
I’m a Canadian Arts recognized local custom metal artist and repurposer. My goal is to self create, and recycle to create. I step outside the box to make the most unique decor, usable art, and one of a kind pieces that are a instant conversation pieces.  I can guarantee any piece will have friends and family or even your customers asking WHERE DID YOU GET THAT??? I create Antique-Rustic to Modern -elegance, reclaimed wood into authentic one-of-a-kind vintage furnitre, iron tables, custom bar racks, candle holders, wedding decor, man cave decor, and much more including custom requests using your old or unwanted pieces!


What you’re up to at the moment, and where can people see you and your work, in person or online?
I’m at the Abbotsford, BC Flea Market on Sundays, and will be at The Lepps (Abbotsford) Christmas at the Farmer’s Table Market on November 15th-16th.

At the moment I’m working on custom home decor designs and one of a kind gifts for guys and gals, making your holiday shopping easy!
Also created a replica 100 year old building, new man cave stuff, car parts made in to art, robots, kitchen tables, light fixtures, candleholders, you name it, and just ask me if you’d like something extra special and custom just for you! Diversity in materials is my challenge, and getting you to come see what I’m working on is my dream. There’s always something new, some say my shop is like a museum! Come walk around, check out the unique pieces I have for sale and hope to see you at Lepps Market Nov.15-16, 2013!
