April White was born on Haida Gwaii, of the Yahgu’jaanaas Raven Clan. Through her father, she is a direct descendant of the renowned Stastas Eagle Chief and Haida Artist, Charles Edenshaw. April has dozens of relatives living in these islands, all practicing indigenous art–painting, sculpting, totem poles, carving masks using cedar bark and spruce root in weaving, jewelry making, steaming bentwood boxes and creating art out of Argillite – these include her brother Darrel White, and her cousins Christian White, Derek White, Jim Hart and Gwaai Edenshaw. She is also a relative of the late Bill Reid.
April White received her Bachelor of Science degree in geology from the University of British Columbia. She has worked as a geologist in remote areas of the Canadian West, an experience which has been of assistance in developing the visual faculty essential to creating her works of art. It wasn’t until the mid-eighties that April decided to completely devote herself to her painting. Entirely self-taught, April’s natural inclination stems from her Haida heritage, where being an artist is an honoured profession.

“This rectangular Coast Salish design depicts the sun flanked by four hummingbirds. The round split u-forms at the ends of the design suggest red flower petals. Rufous Hummingbirds, a species of hummingbird that migrates to Coast Salish territory in the spring, are drawn to red colours, sometimes mistaking anything red for flowers from which they can feed on nectar. As a contemporary Coast Salish artist, I have always been fascinated by hummingbirds because of their beautiful appearance, small size, and unique way of flying. Whenever I hEAR hummingbirds swooping down around wooded areas, I am reminded that spring and warm weather have arrived.”
