Juror Comments: A fully executed sculpture that was well balanced and with good detail. The Jurors loved that it could be rotated emphasizing the movement of flight.
About the Artist:
I studied design, drawing and sculpting at Dr. Arthur Lismer’s school at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, winning an award for my sculpting. After a long career in Graphic Design in Montreal I decided to move to Prince Edward County at the end of 2017 to be a part of the wonderful arts community. I’m thoroughly enjoying life in the County while I continue to carve at my home studio/gallery in Picton.
I carve the softer stones; Soapstone, Serpentine, Alabaster, Cola and African Wonderstone (pyrophyllite) among others. My subjects are mainly Canadian wildlife, reflecting my love of nature. Sometimes the ideas come quickly, with the shape of the stone providing inspiration. I believe the Inuit carvers who say the finished piece is in the stone, waiting to be revealed.
