Biography

David was born and raised on Vancouver Island and always had a love for the  local West Coast style of Native Art.  He started his own business when he was 24 years old and even  having a busy family  life with 5 children, always found time to dabble in some artistic endeavour.  When he retired 12 years ago he was able to give his full attention to artistic creativity.

David crafts out of his workshop at home in Victoria B.C. where he has resided for the past 40 years.  During this time, he's completed many carvings using local red and yellow cedar.  He frequently  incorporates  metal in his projects with silver, copper or brass.  Almost every piece is accented with abalone shell.  David has also started utilizing fused glass in his latest works.

Another of his interests is making silver and gold jewelry  as well as abstract art using wood and metal.
