Alvin Adkins

Haida Nation
 

Alvin was born in Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada, in 1959. He is a self-taught artist who works in gold, silver, wood and argillite.

Alvin is a member of the Haida nation, a group who inhabits Haida Gwaii which is a series of islands at the most westerly point of Canada.

Beginning his career as an artist in 1971, Alvin has been counseled by distinguished peers such as Dempsey Bob, Freda Diesing, Bill Reid, Robert Davidson and Don Yeomans. Alvin has established himself as a prominent artist whose style reflects intricacy, experience and quality. Currently he is putting most of his time toward carving jewelry pieces that are sought-after by many Northwest Coast First Nations art collectors. His work has also been exhibited at the Museum of Northern British Columbia.

Alvin is one of the many Haida artists who, through maintaining the traditional Haida carving style, is aiming to preserve his heritage for future generations.

 

Awards:

2010     British Columbia Creative Achievement Award for First Nations’ Art
