Lawrence Wilson

Nisga'a Nation
 

Lawrence Wilson was born March 22nd, 1954 in Prince Rupert, BC, Canada.  He is a member of the Nisga'a Nation, a group that inhabits the Northern coast of the province, near the Nass River.  Lawrence takes the Killerwhale, known as the powerful hunter underwater, as his family crest.

In 1977 Lawrence attended K'san, the only first nations art school in British Columbia at the time.  During his studies, Lawrence began making northwest coast native artwork.  He reveals that he has worked with Norman Tait, a prominent and well established first nations artist.  They completed such projects as carving totem poles and canoes.  In 1990 Lawrence had the opportunity to help build a longhouse in Ottawa.  This project created a great deal of awareness toward his creative capabilities.
