Gerd Bruckschwaiger – Cape Breton Centre for Craft

Gerd Bruckschwaiger

Gerd Bruckschwaiger was born in Austria and immigrated to Cape Breton in 1960. Gerd is a self-taught artist and many do believe that he was born with a paintbrush in his hands. He started painting at the age of 8. Once seeing Cape Breton’s scenery, he tried to capture the beauty on canvas. Most of his paintings are available as high-class reproductions.
