Ken’s crest is Frog. He works in diverse art forms including: limited edition prints, original paintings in oils, drums, and the carving of jewellery and cedar poles, masks, rattles, sculptures. He is a master carver who began his career at the Gitanmaax School of Northwest Coast Indian Design in 1970 where he also has taught. He also studied jewellery making with Jack Leyland in 1975, and watercolour painting with Ron Burleigh in 1978. In 2004, Ken was asked to illustrate the children’s book ‘Returning the Feathers’, which is based on five famous Gitksan legends. Ken also provided the design for the ‘Weget Legends’ publication. Ken has years of formal training in traditional Gitksan art, but he is known as one of the most creative and experimental First Nations artists working today. Many of his works contain surreal and abstract elements, and his impressive attention to detail is incredibly distinctive.
