George Kurjanowicz has been creating uncommon stone sculpture since 1975. He has worked with commercial and residential clients to create designs that complement both indoor and outdoor architectural environments.

Subject matter from the natural world has long been George's inspiration. His ability to discover the essence of a subject and adapt it to a new environment, has enabled him to work with both private clients and architects to produce literal and interpretative images that are a unique blend of his vision and a customers needs.

The styles and examples of work on this page are a reflection of George's personal aesthetic vision. While it is imperative for an artist to meet a clients needs, it is also his vital function to produce an exceptional piece of art that will continue to stimulate both its viewers and its environment long after it has been installed.
