Frank Paulson, Haida Nation
 

Frank Paulson was born in Skidegate, Queen Charlotte Islands in British Columbia, also known as the Haida Gwaii. This series of Islands is situated along the northern coast of the province bordering with Alaska. Frank is of Haida descent and has been deeply influenced by many Haida master artists including Tom Price, Charles Edenshaw, John Robson, John Cross and more recently, Bill Reid, Robert Davidson, Nelson Cross, and Don Yeomans.

Inspired by the classic Haida crest symbols of the Eagle, Raven and Frog, Paulson creates unique and finely crafted works of art. Remaining within mediums of gold and silver, his engraving is intricately carved and multi-dimensional, thus in keeping with traditional Haida form lining. Frank Paulson currently produces some of the finest Haida jewelry pieces found today.

In 1993, Paulson was featured in a documentary shown on APTN and the Knowledge Network entitled, Ravens and Eagles. This insightful documentary revealed Frank Paulson’s cultural background, work ethic and personal hobbies to provide the man behind the art. Frank Paulson’s work can be found throughout many local and international collections and he continues to develop unique works that pay homage to Haida tradition.
