picture of Clifton carving a figure

Nova Scotia artist Clifton Sears - Bio

    Clifton began selling his carvings of lobster fishermen in the early nineteen seventies. Incorporating humour into historical scenes and current issues he became well known along the south shore.

     Wildlife themes were part of his work from the beginning. Figurative works and portraiture were added later.

    He has also evolved to work in other mediums, including stone, marble, ceramics, and pewter.

     He is self taught, although he reads, no studies, books and magazines in the fields of art composition, carving and sculpture. Also, travels to the United States, Norway, Germany, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and more recently Melbourne Australia, have exposed him to the works of other sculptors and artists.
