James Taylor

Kwakwaka'wakw Nation
 

James Taylor was born in Alert Bay, British Columbia, Canada located along the northern coast of Vancouver Island. He is a member of the Kwakwaka’wakw (Kwagiulth) nation, a group which inhabits the southern region of the province.

 

James has been carving since 1986 using such medium as cedar wood and silver. He is versatile artist who enjoys making both miniature pieces as well as full size. His style is traditionally Kwakwaka’wakw which is evident in the form, shape and use of colour in his work. His attention detail is always apparent and his standard is high in terms of quality of workmanship.

 

Presently, James resides on Vancouver Island, near Victoria and is apprenticing under prominent artist, Tony Hunt, who is instructing James on perfecting his designs even further. James enjoys working in silver just as much as in wood and has produced some very intricate sand unique pieces of jewelry. He is well on his way to becoming one of the prominent artists of the Pacific Northwest Coast.
