Alvin Mack is the youngest son of carver William Mack. At the age of thirteen, inspired by the work of his father, Mack began to experiment with carving yellow cedar. At this early age, Mack was accomplished in creating large totem poles and ceremonial items containing traditional Nuxalk imagery. He went on to become a graduate of the Gitanmaax School of Northwest Coast Art in K’san, where he was taught by Master Carvers Earl Muldoe, Walter Harris, Vernon Stephens and Ken Mowatt.
In 1987 Mack started the Nuxalk Art Project at the Acswalcta School where he also taught Northwest Coast art.
Mack continued to refine his skills and takes great pride in re-creating the traditional forms of his Bella Coola heritage. Today he is held in high regard both within the Nuxalk community as well as the contemporary art community.
