Neil Z. Cox


Neil was born in Ingersoll, Ontario, in 1955 and had an interest in working with wood early in life. At the age of 26, he was making furniture in Vancouver, and a few years later began carving wood. Neil is essentially self-taught, having apprenticed with Stefan Vinyarszky in North Carolina, and spending six months in Italy learning to carve marble. He has traveled widely, visiting sculptors and museums throughout North America and Europe in order to expand his artistic knowledge and ability. He has won several Best of Show awards at woodcarving shows across North America. His work is primarily figurative in style and often allegorical. He currently lives in Toronto with his wife Kathryn and three young children.
