He started his career in the offshore, as a petroleum geologist. But one day in the early '80's, Ben Ploughman burned his resumes, went home to Port au Choix, and built himself a little studio.
These days, Ben is a folk artist. An artist who isn't afraid to think outside the box. An artist inspired by, of all things, lobster pots. Specifically, the old weather-beaten wooden laths. Ben has taken the lobster pot lath to high levels, in his own special brand of art. His lobster pot lath driven works of Newfoundland culture.
