About The Artist
My name is "Qwuyutaupool", which means "police of wolves". I have been carving since 1980. I was inspired by totem pole carver "Tom Touchie" and canoe carver "Wallace Touchie" and have worked to honour my heritage through art.
I was encouraged by my mother, "Fran" from Nuu-chah-nulth Nation and my father, "Wilson" from the Coast Salish Nation to give contemporary form to ancestral designs. Through my art, I hope to create a window into the rich culture of my people.
