Phil is a younger artist working in northwest coast art. Born in 1988, he has already established a following for his work. He is very much rooted in the Tsimshian traditions but his work is always refreshing, and creative. His carving is thoughtful and beautifully executed. In 2014 he won the BC Creative Achievement Award for First Nations art. He’s also been featured in multiple shows from the Vancouver Art Gallery to the Bill Reid Gallery, the McMichael Gallery and the Museum of Art and Design in New York.
