JP Sculpture at University of Waterloo

I believe that we were made for joy. And that out of that joy comes our desire to create. And to be creative means to participate in bringing things together.

 We all in some way participate collectively in being creative...

James Paterson

         James' work has won numerous awards and received mainstream media           

         coverage. Large signature pieces have been commissioned for some of

         the  world's most renown children's hospitals and private collectors. His wire               sculptures have been found at top exhibitions in Canada, the United States,               Europe, and Asia. 

"I hope that people who see my art will come away with an infusion of joy and delight. That they will be reminded there are mysteries in life worth probing, inner journeys of discovery worth taking and deep resonant rhythms sounding around us that we must listen carefully for if we are to hear them and be awakened to the redemptive nature of God in creation."

 

"I want people who see my art to reclaim a simple sense of wonder."

                                                                                                     James Paterson
