Northwest Coast Native Artist Andrew Williams from Haida Nation

Haida Nation

Andrew Williams was born in 1964 in Masset, located on Haida Gwaii.

His Crests include Raven, Shark, Kllerwhale, Grizzly and Raven-finned Killerwhale. He is a self-taught artist and has been carving since 1995. He describes his work as a “blend of traditional and contemporary art” and tries to convey his “passion for art, [his] Haida ancestry, and the Old Stories”.

In June of 1999, Andrew took a shaping course with Gary Minaker-Russ through the First peoples Cultural Foundation Grant. Andrew’s influences are Christian White and Terry Yeltazie for their inlay work and Gary Minaker-Russ for polishing technique and form.

In 2009, Andy graduated from Vancouver’s Northwest Coast Jewelry Arts program under established Haida/Kwakwaka’wakw artist, Dan Wallace.
