Sandy Cline is a self-taught sculptor who has been developing
his skills for over 40 years. Sandy credits his successes to
the insight that he gained from studying the books on sculpture
by Malvina Hoffman.
He has taught carving at workshops in colleges, museums and
schools across Canada and the United States. He refuses to believe
in the idea of special talent being needed to carve. Rather,
he prefers to trust that the urge to create is inherent in all
of us and that the teacher should promote these values in the
people who seek that knowledge.
Sandy had been asked to create pieces for awards and presentations
by various colleges and organizations such as Sir Sanford Fleming
College, the Canadian Synchronized Swimming Team, the Cleveland
Museum of Natural History, the Canadian Nurses Association, Sports
Canada and the Women's World Hockey Championships among many
