Darrell White

Darrell White was born in Queen Charlotte City, Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands) in 1960. He is a member of the Dadens Yakulaanaas Raven Clan from the village of Masset. The family moved from the island in 1964 and lived in various communities before settling down in Powell River, British Columbia. Darrell remained in Powell River until the age of forty-one, having worked the last fifteen years as a fabricator/welder, before leaving his job to pursue a career in carving.

Darrell comes from a family with strong artistic traditions. He is the great, great grandson of renowned carver, Charles Edenshaw, and a cousin to the contemporary carvers, Christian White and Jim Hart.

Despite growing up away from the culture, Darrell had always had a keen interest in Haida artistry and his heritage. He is largely a self-taught artist and has been carving for several years. Darrell has most recently carved with Christian White, gaining new insight and learning different techniques. He has studied the works of Haida master carvers in museums and books over many years before committing to carving full time.
