Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Brad Starr is from the Fish Clan of the Haisla Nation with ancestry in Kitimaat, Kemano, Kitasoo, and Heiltsuk.Major influences in his life have been the 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 canoe builder.
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
