David Tuttle has been interested in kites since the late 1970s when at the Ontario College of Art he was assigned a kite design project. This piqued his interest and he eventually became totally involved in kites and kite flying.
After a move to Vancouver in 1981 he began working at High as a Kite in Gastown and joined the British Columbia Kitefliers Association where he fulfilled various executive positions in the club structure over the years. He is currently a member of the B.C.K.A and the A.K.A.
He first visited Swift Current in 1997 to help plan the first Windscape Kite Festival in 1998 and to curate the kite exhibition “On Blue – The Kite As Art”. He enjoyed the prairies and prairie people so much he came back to live. He now now assists with the planning and set-up of the current “Windscape” festival.
David enjoys building and flying single line kites of all types especially cellular designs and kite trains. He also enjoys collecting kite books and currently has a kite library of over 80 volumes.
