Thomas Kjorven

Thomas’s 10 years of direct experience in landscaping was inspired by a childhood spent learning how to operate a machine on his father’s lap and an adolescence of high school summers working in the field. Thomas refined his craft with Houston Landscapes in Vancouver for six years, specializing in machine work and hard scape. Working on projects as varied as large scale custom homes and downtown Vancouver commercial developments, Thomas has gained extensive landscaping experience.

He and his wife Shar moved to Kelowna in 2009 to start TK Land Design and Excavation. In just a few years, he’s become well-respected around town for his quality artistry, reliability, and friendly professional demeanor.

Shar Kjorven

Partners first in life and now in business, Thomas’s wife Shar brings more than a decade of administrative and design experience to TK Land Design and Excavation. From her start in sales at Holt Renfrew, Shar established herself as a respected Vancouver make-up artist. Her extensive experience landed her a teaching position at the prestigious Blanche Macdonald Centre, where she originally earned her own diploma in Makeup Artistry. The student became the master and remained at Blanche Macdonald for six years, working her way up to become an Associate Director. After running her Kelowna shop SHAR Skincare and Rouge for two years, Shar now brings her talent and focus home to the shared vision of TKLDE.
