"Art has shaped John Boxtel's life just as he has shaped a life for and from his sculptures."
~ Mark Bergin, Kingston Heritage
John Boxtel writes:
As a child during the war, I had a great need for beauty. I was fascinated with the wood-carvings of the Black Forest. I was particularly drawn to the nativity scenes I saw in the window of a store near where my family lived in the town of Goirle. I would stand for hours looking at the pieces and admiring the skills that went into them. I fervently wished that one day I would be able to make such things.
