Cultural Background: Cook’s Ferry Indian Band from the Nl’ha7kapmx Nation
"I was born in 1972 in the heart of British Columbia and spent most of my young life in the beautiful little town of Spences Bridge and in downtown Vancouver. I first picked up a pencil for my first drawing that hung on Auntie Bunnie’s fridge when I was eight. I am mostly self-taught with some instruction in high school art classes. I grew up in a large family with humble beginnings and started my career selling artwork page-by-page from my sketchbook.
My style has been referred to as Modern Native Art. My work is largely pencil crayon drawings with some acrylic on canvas paintings reflecting wildlife with my own personal touch of aboriginal influence, creating a spectacular and breathtaking portfolio.
Over the past couple of years I have expanded my portfolio to include colourful drawings, some black and grey work and a beautiful display of painting on canvas. I take great pride in my heritage and like to incorporate a little Aboriginal Education in every work of art I create. Some pieces focus on the Great Chiefs of the Northwest such as Sitting Bull and Geronimo."
