Jock is a graduate of Emily Carr University with an international reputation for large sculptural projects, primarily in bronze and stone. His vision of sculpture has been gathered from his almost 40 years as a professional artist. Many of his ideas stem from his interest in anthropology and ethnology, as well as extensive travels. These influences are often portrayed in his works, but also interspersed and blended with his love of the ocean and the West Coast topography.
In addition to creating sculpture, Jock is also an accomplished painter. In the 1990’s he was cited by Dr. Edward Gibson, Curator of the Simon Fraser University Gallery, as one of the three best watercolor artists on the West Coast (along with Toni Onley and Mark Tobey).

My vision of sculpture has been gathered from my 35+ year career as a professional sculptor. To me, sculpture making has become not only a profession, but also a life-long spiritual search.
