Partner and Sculptor

Bruno is a seasoned artist who has developed a new passion for landscape sculptures. His works come from nature observations and responses to the movement of life and depth of emotion.

Forms may become abstracted to reveal forces, duality and relationships while stimulating base emotional interaction with its viewers. In his landscape and garden sculpture practice, Bruno works in a variety of mediums with a preference towards free-form concrete, welded steel and cast bronze sculptures. He loves doing special commission works because behind each sculpture project new interesting friendships and deep insights of enlightenment arise. Contact Bruno

Bruno is part of the Victoria County Studio Tour in the Kawartha on Sept. 28-29 and Oct. 5-6 2019. Please also visit Bruno’s web site.
