He’s first introduction to West Coast Art was watching a pole-raising ceremony in Kispiox. As well as watching an artist paint several designs on the elementary school. It took a few years later to start learning the basic designs, like ovoids, crescents, U-forms, fillers, and form lines. He is thankful for the ancestors and mentors to assist in creating plaques, bowls, masks, totem poles, rattles, talking stick, and engraving. The honorable teachers’ are Earl Muldon, Vernon Stephens, Roy Hanuse and Clarence Wells. As a tribute to their lessons, Errol passes the gift of carving or drawing to those who are serious on learning the art. , “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear”.
