Bruce was born and educated in Woodstock, Ontario. He graduated with an Honors BA in Fine Arts from the University of Guelph in 1970 taking his teaching accreditation at Althouse College, University of Western Ontario in London.
After teaching for 10 years with the Oxford Board of Education, he pursued his dream of sculpting, taking his Master of Fine Art (MFA) in New York at the Pratt Institute between 1982 and 1984.
He returned to teaching Visual Arts with the Thames Valley Board of Education in 1986 and retired February 1st, 2002 to pursue his sculpting full time.
Bruce says "I've been inspired by the gentleness of 6th century B.C. Etruscan tomb figures and the calmness of the Classical Greeks. Della Robia's wall plaques have been an inspiration in their tenderness. But it is to the great 19th century sculptor, Auguste Rodin, that I owe my deepest debt, both in regard to his theories and his themes."
