EUROA artist Ian Firth said last week that one of the best parts of his craft was the physicality of sculpting and painting.

The National Art School graduate is known for his three dimensional, layered wooden paintings which have been exhibited in Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne and North East Victoria.

Born in London, Mr Firth moved to Australia with his parents as a seven year old.

Once he finished high school, Mr Firth went to study commercial art at the University of South Australia.
