Wayne Martin (a.k.a. “The Stoneman”) graduated from George Brown College in 1975, with a brick and stone mason diploma after completing a three year apprenticeship. He has enjoyed his trade in masonry ever since, and applied his experience towards creating and installing unique architectural stone concepts.
Wayne, Judith and family moved to Manitoulin Island in 1998 from the Muskoka’s. Wayne had created much in the way of stone fireplaces, flagstone walkways, patios etc. in homes and cottages in that area.
