Henry Green was born in 1956 and raised in Port Simpson, on the coast of British Columbia. Raised within a family and community rich in tradition, Henry’s earliest training was with his father who introduced him to the trading language of Chinook. Green credits Haida artists Freda Diesing and Don Yeomans in particular for stimulating his interest in carving, and George Clutesi for developing his appreciation for storytelling.
Henry Green has completed formal art training at the Emily Carr College of Art and Design in Vancouver, British Columbia (1986 – 87) and at the Institute of San Miguel D’Allende in Mexico (1982 – 83).
As well as an exceptional designer, Henry Green is a highly accomplished engraver and carver. Henry is strongly committed to native education and land claim initiatives. Known for maintaining a traditional northern form along with achieving a great deal of relief carving within the context of jewelry, his work can be found in many private and corporate collections. Henry Green is a master carver and his work is highly sought by local and international collectors.

“This contemporary Coast Salish design, titled “Pro Creation”, through the act of creativity,is a celebration of the act of procreation. In the design, two salmon heads are depicted, the negative crescentric space simultaneously defining their mouths, as well as defining each other’s lower jaw. This simple visual punning represents interconnectedness through procreation. This simple visual punning also represents the beginnings of the offspring of the two salmon. In some of philosophical musings, I have often wondered which act is great, creation or procreation? I came to the conclusion that procreation is great than creation, since creation, as a human culture, woudl not exist without procreation. I also felt that the lIFe of one human being is much greater than the body of work of any artist. Recently though, I have felt that creatively creates culture, and makes the procreation of many generations possible. So I now see both creation and procreation as both being great acts of humankind.
On a personal leve, althought I am not really “pro-choice” or “pro-life”, my myOTHER , when she was a sixteen year old girl with me, was considering abortion. With love for her, I am thankful that she gave birth to me. If she never procreated me, the creativity of my lIFe would not exisit.”
