Born 1970, Picture Butte, Alberta
Troy Bellerose is a contemporary artist of Cree heritage, born in Picture Butte, Alberta. Bellerose moved to British Columbia in 1986 where he soon took a keen interest in Northwest Coast art. With the help of his close friend Andrew Morrison, an accomplished artist of the Nisga'a nation, Bellerose learned the fundamentals of formline style and design.
Taking up red and yellow cedar as his medium in work, Bellerose began carving in 1995. He has since studied under established Haisla artist Art Bolton, who guided Bellerose in learning the art of mask carving.
Bellerose works predominantly in a variety of Northern styles with an emphasis on wood. He focuses his energies on producing bowls, bentwood boxes, paddles and other carvings. His work is held in a number of commercial galleries around the city of Vancouver.
