Lorrie Pambrun grew up in Alberta, where his first teacher was his grandfather who taught him to carve wood. When he moved to the coast of British Columbia, Pambrun had the opportunity to work with such prominent Northwest Coast Native artists as Norman Tait, Roy Hanuse, and Barry Wilson.
Pambrun is quite diversified as an artist; he works in gold, silver, ivory, and wood. Since 1992, he has mainly concentrated on working in wood: masks, bowls, panels, etc. His work exhibits fine attention to detail and also displays a high degree of craftsmanship.
