"I made this design for my cousin because he wanted a design to give to his nephew. The design had to have a Raven to represent our clan (Haidas are 2 clans, Eagles and Ravens), a Wolf to represent his nephew's spirit animal and a Butterfly because he loves them.
The Raven who symbolizes change in life, creativity, and humor is having a meeting with the Wolf who symbolizes perseverance, intuition and success. The Butterfly who symbolizes metamorphosis, balance and grace is sharing with them what she knows." - Lon French
I?m a Haida graphic artist that has been doing Haida art since the end of 2012. At that time, I decided I needed to change the direction of my life. This is when I started learning about my family from Haida Gwaii. I researched Haida art and learned the basic forms. Then I started playing with designs and developed my own style. That style has evolved and continues to evolve the more I do. I have tried to stay traditional and have on the most part but feel that to grow as an artist I must be open to change. As I continue on my new path I?ll try new things and learn more about tradition also and that will reflect in my work. Mostly, I?m self taught but I was also initially taught for a short time by George Hunt Jr. At S J Willis Secondary back in the early ?80s. I hope you enjoy my designs and follow my journey of discovery in the world of Haida art.
