Artist Statement

I grew up on the Salish Seas with my grandfather dad and uncles fishing and hunting. This is where my inspiration comes from seeing the flow and movement of the fish seals whales deer and eagles. At the age of 9 I started carving and been carving since then. I have traditional yet unique style to my work. I do custom orders fabrications screen printing etc.

I carve on red and yellow cedar. I also have carved on fir yew and alder. My work consists of small to large Plaques (flat and 2D), Sculptors, Poles, Spindles, and I am willing to try any idea presented to me at least once.

Transformations on the shore is a carving contest I enter in once a year for the last few years and placed 2nd twice and 1st place once.

I create glass portraits, 3D art and currently apprenticing in soapstone carvings and silver jewellery.


I am a coast Salish artist my work is unique traditional yet contemporary.
