Born and educated in Denmark and now a resident of Jupiter Florida, Gert started his career carving cabinetry & wood sculpture. A visit to Pietra Santa Italy started his fascination with Carrara Marble which evolved to 30 years of hand selecting marble from Europe, & quarries throughout the United States. He uses both pneumatic and manual chisels to transform blocks of marble into animals, human form, and abstract designs. Visit Wicks Park in Saugatuck or the Bear Museum in Naples Florida & you’ll see a larger than life Gert Bear!
Gert is one of the original Joyce Petter Gallery Artists!
