Don Frost is a self-taught artist, practicing since the age of six. In 1974 he received a major commission for a new mall being built in his home town of Peterborough, Ontario. In 1983 he won a competition to create the largest sculpture in Canada, for the Michael Starr Building in Oshawa, Ontario. He created more than 40 sculptures in a period of twenty years for a single patron and his work has been commissioned for a garden in Club Medjulis in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and for an expansive design project by the late King Hussein for a 1.6 km wall of huge relief panels commemorating the history of Jordan. The greatest work of Don’s career now stands as “The Resurrection Cross” outside the Catholic School Board office on Lansdowne Street in Peterborough, Ontario.
