    Dwayne Simeon ~ Kwakwaka’wakw

    Dwayne was mostly self-taught. He learned blacksmithing as a teenager, began experimenting with carving, and then apprenticed under Tony Hunt and John Livingstone when he was in his twenties. He was inspired to work as a professional artist by Sam Henderson at Campbell River, BC. He started engraving silver jewellery in the mid-1980s, but carving wood is still his focus. He performed a demonstration of his carving techniques at Expo ’86 for the Folk Life Programs.
