Biography of the artist

 

James Grant, a Haisla artist and carpenter by trade, was born in 1963 in Kitamaat Village, British Columbia, where he still lives today.

 

His artistic endeavours started in high school, when he first drew simple shapes and sold his creations to his teachers.

 

Through the years, his art has evolved with finer lines and a creative focus on themes around the symbols representing the different clans of the Haisla Nation: Eagle, Beaver, Crow, Killer Whale, Raven, and Salmon. 

 

His creations are now sold worldwide.
