Don carves jewellery in gold and silver, and he also produces limited edition prints, poles and sculptures in wood and glass. He was introduced to Northwest Coast art by artist Freda Diesing (deceased) and in 1976 he studied at Langara College in the Fine Arts program. Don then apprenticed under Robert Davidson. Don’s design “The Frog People Fleeing from the Black Bear” was chosen to be included in the Northwest Coast Indian Artists’ Guild graphic collection. In 1978, he helped Davidson produce four totem poles for the Charles Edenshaw Memorial Longhouse in Masset, B.C. In the 1980s, Don completed a two-year apprenticeship with celebrated Gitksan artist, Phil Janze. He learned engraving, chasing, casting and repousse techniques during this time. In 2007, Don received a large commission to create a 40-foot totem pole at the Vancouver International Airport. Don has become one of the most accomplished Haida artists working today.
