Robert Breur is a 20-year student of clay sculpting and woodcarving, specializing in the features of the human figure as well as a few other animals. He typically sculpts in clay as a maquette and then copies that form to wood as his final art form. His works have the outward expression of the pose and the internal message from his living subjects. His works are intended to be viewed from all directions and even touched to be fully appreciated. His skills have recently been applied not only to creating his own works, but also as augmentation to art therapy for returning veterans with PTSD, as his preferred form of volunteer work.
