Pacific West Coast Salish Carving By Tyrone Joseph:
A Coast Salish Artist, Tyrone Joseph was born in 1951 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Tyrone is a Constable for the First Nations Tribal
Police.He lives in the beautiful coastal range of North Vancouver with
his wife Norma and their two children. He is a member of the Coast Salish Tribe
of the Squamish Nation, Capila.
Tyrone is one of eight creative brothers and, as a result, was inspired to begin carving before 10 years old under the influence of his family and the elders in the community.
Tyrone is a self-taught accomplished artist whose attention to detail and traditional style are evident in each piece he creates. He uses red and yellow cedar as his medium to carve plaques, drums, paddles, totem poles, masks and sculptures. Tyrone incorporates many family crest symbols into to his works in the hope to protect his cultural history for upcoming generations. He is a prolific artist.
Shipping and handling is $6.oo by UPS in the US. To my Canadian friends, it will be shipping by USPS and the cost will be a little higher.
Unfortunately, due to some very bad experiences, I will no longer be shipping outside North America.
