“I am a self-taught artist, developing and refining my techniques and creativity through study and admiration of the powerful and beautiful Salish art form. I carve with cedar and alder wood, producing three dimensional poles and masks. Every graphic and carving is an original and unique creation reflecting my Salish heritage and tradition. With the re-emergence of little known Salish Art we are laying the foundation, honouring and recognizing past, present and future Salish artists. Scholars, private collectors, galleries and the general public are witness to the development of tradition in the making.”
