Salish Son Design
I am a Coast Salish graphic artist, originally from Seabird Island. My design work varies and includes Coast Salish elements and references to pop culture. I get my artistic hands into a bit of everything : designs for apparel companies, Indigenous business logos and branding, posters/flyers, memorial designs, and digital work (vectoring) for other artists. Every design has a story. I want to share the beauty of our culture through art.
My father painted, and often spent time illustrating how necessary these bold symbols and colors were to our people. My mother spent so many nights writing poetry, memoirs, and essays to convey how loved my siblings and I were, and that we had a tough journey ahead, but that our traditions and the lessons we received would carry us through. Storytelling through visual art. I believe that’s the beauty of lineage, that it’s in my blood, to keep moving forward and keep creating. I want to contribute and make spaces for the next generation of artists. It’s such a privilege to share my work with everyone.
I have made it my life’s work to create art that echoes the past of the First Nations folk of British Columbia. I was born and raised on the west coast of Vancouver Island in the remote village of Yuquot, and was inspired to start carving by my uncle – the late Chief Dominic Andrew. I am self-taught, but also received formal training from the Gitanmaax School of Northwest Coast Indian Art at ‘Ksan in Old Hazelton, BC. Throughout the years I have proudly participated in many events and noteworthy organizations including:
I divide my time each year between Hope and Yuquot, carving hand-made quality items using natural materials. My work is traditional, and crafted by time-honoured methods.
• Masks • Paddles • Totem Poles • Doors • Bent Boxes • Plaques & Murals •Sculptures • Talking Sticks & Canes • And much more!
