Artist Statement/Biography

Artist Statement/Biography

Born in 1959, in Greece, Mike immigrated to Canada in 1965. At age 40, he began sculpting on a whim, after moving and finding out his new neighbour was E. B. Cox. Mike took a discarded piece of pink alabaster from him, carved it with a pocket knife and showed him the finished piece. Cox's reply - "I've seen worse" - was an uplifting compliment. Mike subsequently moved into larger pieces of cedar and soapstone and is presently working in larger cedar and limestone.
