Francis Horne Sr.

Coast Salish Nation
 

Francis Horne was born October 18, 1952 in Mount Vernon, Washington and raised in Duncan, British Columbia, Canada. He began carving in 1973 and is largely self-taught. He does reveal that Simon Charlie, a prominent Chief and accomplished artist, greatly influenced his pursuit of creating large-scale art. Subsequently, Francis began to explore and educate himself on the style of the northern nations. This interest led him to pursue large-scale public art reflecting the traditional northern images in its traditional format. Occasionally, Francis focuses on depicting images in keeping with his Coast Salish heritage.

Francis has produced numerous major totem poles for public, corporate and private international commissions. The city of Duncan, known as the “City of Totem Poles,” has five of his poles. His smaller scale works and masks are limited in number, as his reputation for large-scale works keeps him occupied. Whether a mask or a 10 to 20 foot totem pole his elaborate detail and precise incisions reflects both his expertise and his dedication to maintaining a high standard of quality and collectibility of his artwork. He prefers to work in red or yellow cedar and occasionally works with alder wood.
