In 1976 Sawchuk and his wife Pat Helps bought 4 acres of land in Fanny Bay, B.C. They built a house and tilled a vegetable patch, Sawchuk used the rest of the wooded area to work on his art. He spent his time attaching found objects to trees, carving sculptures and building wooden books with quotations. His forest gallery is filled with works art work, often with a political slant. Sawchuk continued working on his artistic creations until he passed away in 2012.
