Raymond Scow

Kwakwaka'wakw Nation
 
Raymond was born February 12th, 1959 in Gilford Island, British Columbia on a barge while his father was fishing for clams. This Island is located along the north coast of Vancouver Island and is one of the focal areas inhabited by the Kwakwaka’wakw nation to which Raymond belongs.

As an up and coming artist, Raymond’s workmanship, technique and focus on the traditional Kwakwaka’wakw style is evident in each piece he creates, whether a mask, rattle, or bowl. His understanding and knowledge of his culture and of the medium that he utilizes portrays an advanced carving ability that surpasses the length of time he has been carving.

Raymond apprenticed under prominent Kwakwaka’wakw artist, Barry Scow, his cousin and presently carves with his brothers, Alfred and Rupert. They greatly influenced his carving skills and taught him the way to refine his pieces. Early this year, Raymond aided in carving a 40 foot totem pole that was commissioned by an establishment in New York state.

Presently, Raymond resides in Campbell River where he continues to create contemporary works of art.
