Clan of the Haisla Nation with ancestry in Kitimaat, Kemano, Kitasoo,

culture, life style, and the values of his people. He has been inspired
by two significant members of his extended family: his uncle Sam
Robinson -a master carver, and his grandfather Solomon McKay - a master
Brad worked in the construction field for many years. It was
during that time that he gained a new respect and admiration for his
ancestors. They were master builders and architects whose works were
done without aid of modern materials and equipments. Brad's first
serious carving began in 1995. From the first time he picked up carving
tools and transformed a piece of wood from an idea into a physical
reality, he has been captivated by this way of life. Since then he has
been driven to create, translate, and interpret the world around him.
Artists who have taught Brad the basics of carving are Joe Bolton of the
Haisla Nation, and Jimmy Joseph of the Kwakuitl Nation ***** Canada and U.S. shipping 23.00 All other countries please contact me for shipping and handling charges.
