Artist Statement I’m a Haida graphic artist that has been doing
Haida art since the end of 2012. At that time, I
decided I needed to change the direction of my
life. This is when I started learning about my
family from Haida Gwaii. I researched Haida art
and learned the basic forms. Then I started playing with designs and developed my own style. That style has evolved and continues to evolve the more I do. I have tried to stay traditional and have on the most part but feel that to grow as an artist I must be open to change. As I continue on my new path I’ll try new things and learn more about tradition also and that will reflect in my work. Mostly, I’m self taught but I was also initially taught for a short time by George Hunt Jr. at S J Willis Secondary back in the early ‘80s. I hope you enjoy my designs and follow my journey of discovery in the world of Haida art.
