Paul Holbrecht Biography
Born 02/06/1964 at Dendermonde (East-Flanders), Belgium. Since 1989 living at Zottegem. From childhood on I was fascinated by all sorts of creative activity, nature, adventures, everything but sitting on a schoolbench all day. I started drawing more than the average kid, made some early sculpting and woodcarving, mostly with my pocket-knife, and some of my dad's tools. As a teenager, it was obvious that a 'school career' was nothing for me, so I followed my instinct, became a little rebellious, went more and more to the publicity, decorating and illustrating practical art. After years of seeking the 'ideal media', I picked up some stone-sculpting techniques, and the past years I'm concentrating on making original, one of a kind sculptures.
