Myles Edgars was born in 1958 in Queen Charlotte City in Old Massett on the Haida Gwaii Islands to parents Jimmy and Minnie Edgars.
He was inspired by family members growing up, and began carving from the young age of thirteen. Primarily influenced and mentored by his brother in law, Steven Collinson, Myles specializes in carving indigenous figures in Argillite.
Myles has a deep understanding of his family stories and mythologies, and enjoys depicting them in small to large scale pendants. He preserves his family traditions by creating these contemporary works that speak to his cultural history and practices.
The intelligent Eagle symbolizes status, power, peace and friendship. Eagle feathers are considered a sacred part of many ceremonies and rituals. The Eagle is known to mate with one partner for a lifetime.
