  Artist Statement

“My passion is to express my culture through my art and be part of the revival and continuity of my people’s traditions. When painting, I bring our culture to each piece by giving it the style and movement that express our stories in the ways described by my ancestors. My most prominent works have been the construction of two full-scale Tsimshian-style Bighouses. One of them is now housed in the Grand Hall of the Museum of Civilization in Hull, QC and the other is in my home village of Lax Kw’alaams.”
