Description

Shaukat Chaney was first introduced to oil painting in 1974 while enrolled at the University of Minnesota Graduate School of Dentistry. Painting was included in the program to create a better understanding of colours used in dentistry.

Shaukat Chaney's interest in sculpture began in 1975 while creating craniofacial prostheses for trauma and cancer patients at the College of Dentistry, University of Saskatchewan. Here the training in visualizing and understanding colour was found to be extremely useful.

Kneeling ManTo further improve his skills Shaukat studied sculpture under the tutelage of Mr. Bill Epp, head of the sculpture department at the University of Saskatchewan. This led to his fascination with working in bronze. In 1978, Shaukat introduced portrait sculpture to his dental students to help them understand facial shapes and contours. This was the only such program offered to dental students in North America.

In 1986 he moved to Ottawa with his family. In 1989 he enrolled in stone and wood carving courses at the Ottawa School of Art under able guidance of Mr. John Sadler.

Shaukat Chaney retired from dentistry in 1993 and is now sculpting and painting full time at his WaterWalks studio in Cumberland, Ontario. His sculptures have found homes in Canada, USA, India and Spain.
