J. Caz Bentley had an honours BA from the University of Waterloo, with a minor in Classical Studies. Caz was an artist who worked in several mediums – stained glass, acrylics, ceramics, silver point, painting, wood/stone carving and woodblock/wood engraving. His many wood engravings, influenced by Irish history, are stylised Neo-Celtic designs, depicting the many animals represented in the traditional art of the Middle Ages. Much of his inspiration can be attributed to the years he spent as Master Alasdair of Raasay in the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism), a medieval recreation society. With a sword in one hand, a chisel in the other, he never stopped creating.
