My approach to art is to stay as true as possible to the message that is being conveyed. All my work is based on research and consultation with the commissioning body or private collector. It is extremely important for me to create a unique sculpture that resonates with its surroundings and communicates clearly the story or theme. I like to incorporate classic elements with a modern twist. I pride myself in using local foundries and stone companies that are world class. I strongly believe in using materials that are of the highest quality, durable and long lasting. I use both granite and bronze as they are the gold standard for sculpture for its low maintenance and beauty that will last for centuries. Bronze sculpture is still done very closely the way it was done thousands of years ago. It is still a hands on process from the start to end, there are no computer graphics or computerised machines, every piece is hand made creating a unique art piece. The most inspiring part beside it’s classic look for me is that it is proven to stand the trials of time.
I like to sit down with the client when possible to discuss the sculpture commission.
During the sculpture process I keep in contact during the different stages.
If you have an idea of a sculpture you would like to be created, I can work with you to create a design of preference. Or I can design a sculpture for a dedicated space.
Styles can be Abstract, Stylized or figurative. Subject matters can be anything such as animals, people, plants, objects, machinery, science fiction, fantasy or imaginative designs.
I can create small or large sculpture, there is no limit on scale.
I prefer to create my sculpture in bronze for a number of reasons: Bronze picks up detail beautifully, the contrast of light can be spectacular, there is a wide range of effects that can be used. Bronze is a strong durable material, that will last for generations into the future. It is also a material that can be designed under special conditions to look as if it defies gravity.
Please note for realistic figurative sculptures of friends or loved ones I will require photographs of the person from different angles to create a more accurate representation.
We use the top bronze foundries, stone and installation specialist in Canada, including engineering for specialized projects.
