Liam Herbert is a unique and dynamic artist. Liam's slender, angular wood carvings and limited edition bronze sculptures flow with inspiration, diversity and beautiful expressions of life. His art explores the human conditions - family relationships, faith, anger, passion, grief, hope, love and also the lighter side of life with his whimsical sculptures. His sculptures alternately thunder with excitement or soothe the soul in a quiet embrace.
I carved my first sculpture at the age of 7 in the studio of renowned abstract wood expressionist Raoul Hague, in Woodstock, New York. This began my lifelong passion for sculpture as a medium for my art.
I had my formal training at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. I also have 27 years of experience with more than 50 Broadway shows, many of them as a Production Property Master. This wonderful job entailed working with scenery shops constructing props and involved the full spectrum of the production of a Broadway show. During this period I would be carving wood sculptures from 5 foot tall to 22 feet high in Pennsylvania. I am still creating wood figures, limited edition bronzes, wearable sculptures in Bronze, Sterling Silver, and Gold. My hands are led by my heart and soul, and I believe my mission, as an artist is to spread the word of peace, love and harmony with my art. My latest “Peace collection” is resonating with People from around the World. They tell me they have never seen anything like this and this message needs to be spread during our lifetime. They usually wear it out after buying one.
Liam takes you on a journey of his past works. His video "Emotionalism Within" shows the viewer how the human form relates to his sculptures.

Thank you for your support
"When buying from an artist /maker, you're buying more than just an object/painting. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks & months of frustration and moments of pure joy. You aren't just buying a thing, you're buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a moment of someone's life. Most importantly, you're buying the artist more time to do something they are passionate about." -Unknown
