DAVE GEJDOS started art early, age 5, following his father, as he did his art. In grade school and high school he discovered sculpting with clay, but continued sketching almost anything he saw. Dave started sculpting birds 45 years ago, competing, showing, teaching and judging, throughout Canada and USA. Growing up, his interest in banding birds and raising falcons brought him closer than ever to perfecting the anatomy of the bird and its surroundings.
His sculptures are not confined to just birds and wildlife. Nor to just wood. He also enjoys the human form. His commissioned sculptures at the Royal Sask Museum’s “Human Factor Exhibit” (permanent display) gave him the freedom to use a wide variety of mediums. And working with Regina Visual Display in the 80’s gave him more fun, sculpting large pieces. His works have been shown in various Saskatchewan galleries.
Dave is a retired Firefighter and has an art studio on his acreage with his wife and quite often visiting grandchildren, who stand by his side and learn his art.
