"It is my intention that every work I create will have the capacity to touch the soul."
Paul Deans is a sculptor and portrait artist. He lives and works his art in Christchurch, New Zealand. His artworks feature in private and corporate collections in New Zealand and overseas. Commissions and exhibition works include watercolour and oil paintings, figures and portrait busts, family crests, and other sculptures in wood, limestone, polystyrene, clay and bronze.
"Growing up with an artist as father instilled in me a passion for creating beautiful things and so, by the age of four, I knew that's what I wanted. However, that heritage was also daunting and it took me a long time to concede that this is how I want to work and live."
