At five Bruce was confined to a hospital bed for 1.5 years from which he remembers the story of a Native American riding a horse bareback.
This sense of freedom through movement drives his art.
Subjects of Bruce’s work have included animals, cities, people, courtrooms, athletes, and actors on stage.
Bruce’s work has been exhibited in France, New York, Toronto, Montreal and the Calgary Stampede Artists Studios 2014. His illustrated children’s books about animals have won numerous awards including the Governor General’s Award (2001) and the Wallonia-Brussel’s Prize (2011). Bruce is a licensed artist for the RCMP Foundation, with a mandate to create contemporary images for a world market.
