Donald Liardi is considered by most to be an exceptional sculptor. Many students of sculpture have adopted Liardi as their mentor. Particularly those who have fallen in love with Liardi's human form; albeit exaggerated.
Born in 1951 in Long Island New York, Donald Liardi obtained his Bachelor of Fine Arts at Syracuse University and his post graduate degree was from L'Ecole des Beaux Arts in Geneva Switzerland, where he also received his Degree de Perfection. He spent another two years in Europe studying and exhibited under the encouragement of architect Pascal Hauserman. In 1979 Donald became a Canadian citizen.
In 1980 his work "La Danse" received high acclaim in" Sculpture for the Eighties" exhibition at the McMichael Collection.
In 1982 the Gardiner Foundation commissioned Liardi to sculpture "LeCoeur" , an awared presented for outstanding achievement in Medical Sciences. e has since received several awards, mentions and tributes for his outstanding work.
Recognizable by his exaggeration of key elements of the human form, elongating the outstretched limbs in exuberant, joyous expression, he combines these elements with realistic, delicate, exceptional detail.
Don Liardi is an Elected Member of the Sculptor's Society of Canada, a lecturer at Queen's University where he also conducted sculpting classes.

Donald Liardi "My desire is to create art with positive imagery, capable of communicating the joy of life to the viewer."
Donald Liardi once stated that in sculpturing there is an "unspoken pact" between him and the act. He is an outstanding sculptor. Born in 1951 in Long Island, New York, Liardi obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Syracuse University and a post-graduate degree at L'Ecole des Beaux Arts, Geneva, Switzerland.
It was during this time that his sculptures changed from a minimal, clean surfaced, machine-like style to a more spontaneous, emotive look with elongated proportions and a clear sense of humor. He received his Degree de Perfection, and stayed in Europe for two more years. During this time he studied, taught and exhibited under the encouragement of architect Pascal Hauserman.
He then returned to Canada in 1979 and became a Canadian citizen and also won first prize for his work "La Danse", in the "Sculpture for the 80's" exhibition put on by the McMichael Collection.
In 1980 he was elected a member of the Sculptor's Society of Canada. During 1980-81, Liardi gave workshops and lectures at Queen's University of Kingston, Ontario. Liardi received important recognition in 1982 when the Gairdner Foundation commissioned him to sculpture "Le Coeur", an award presented for outstanding achievement in Medical Sciences.
This leading sculptor has exhibited his work throughout North America and Europe and is represented by fine art galleries around the world. He uses both human and animal forms, celebrating the expressive spirit of both through movement. Liardi exaggerates the key elements of the human form, elongating the outstretched limbs in exuberant, joyous expression and combines these elements with realistic, delicate detail.

Referred to by the sculptor Donald Liardi as Sue's "two by four diplomacy", her direct and often undiplomatic bluntness has lead some viewers to be uncomfortable with her work.
