There is nothing like hearing about Tom’s research and process from the artist himself, so please join us! ARTIST BIOGRAPHY Tom Hjorleifson works in his studio in Canmore, Alberta, creating sculpture in a range of scales from hand-held to monumental, in bronze, stainless steel and stone. In 1980, after graduating from the University of Calgary with a BPE specializing in Outdoor Pursuits, Tom moved to Canmore, where he currently resides with his wife and assistant Patricia. Recently, Tom has been focused on larger installations and the human form. “Exploring the human form, infinitely expands the possibility to create more complex work that inspires viewers to explore their own imagination”.For Tom, creating art is a compelling process, an exciting, irresistible journey.
