The inspiration for Bruces’ art is the shapes and forms of the natural world. Organic contours and edges comprise his work. Whether it is beginning with a blank canvas such as a subtly translucent Carrara marble or the detailed,  and complex hues of onyx, sculpture offers an infinite number of ways to view and appreciate these forms, which can be experienced mostly fully by tactile appreciation and interacting with the art.

Bruce studied drawing, design, and sculpture with professional artists, visited performing and visual arts venues throughout Europe and is currently a leader of the Peninsula Carvers Wood Carving Club in South Surrey, BC, Canada as well as an active member of the Northwest Stone Sculptors Association.  He is an active and juried member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and the Sculptors Society of BC. His stone and wood carvings have won many awards at local and international juried shows, and is featured in galleries in White Rock and Whistler, BC.

Bruce began sculpting in stone in 1996 and has worked in wood and clay since 2013. He enjoys carving the classic human figure, inspirations drawn from nature of all kinds and satisfying the visions of his clients and collectors. 

Bruce lives with his life partner and wife, Silvia, and is the father of three grown and successful children and two beautiful granddaughters.
