  Artist Statement

“The rules of Haida design are deeply rooted within in our culture and our history. By creating contemporary Haida art within these traditional boundaries, I strive to honour our talented artists from the past and create a sense of continuity. My father was an argillite carver for over 40 years and has been my strongest inspiration.”
