About The Artist
A member of the Kwaguilth Nation, Rupert Scow was born in 1957 in Alert Bay, British Columbia, a small fishing village on the northern part of Vancouver Island. Rupert takes the Sisiutl, or double headed sea serpent, and the bear as his family crests. Although he comes from a long line of carvers, Rupert only began to carve in his 20’s under the guidance of Wayne Alfred, Vince Shaughnessy, and Steven Bruce. He has an innate talent and quickly mastered the art of woodcarving.
