  Artist Statement

"I am Tsimshian from the Eagle Clan in Lax Kw’alaams. I love fishing,carving,drawing and goldsmithing. I experiment in many different mediums and work hard towards my artistic visions. Our hereditary system and long history of art and trade provide me with the motivation to truly learn the complex art/culture of the northern people. my goal is developing my own style while respecting the refinement of our historical master craftsmen. I am also deeply inspired by art nouveau and the european masters."
