Corey Moraes

Corey Moraes is of Tsimshian heritage, belonging to the raven clan of the Lax Kw’aLaams Band. From 1995 until the present he has researched the artistic style of his people in books, galleries, and museums. Moraes has apprenticed woodcarving under David Boxley and has worked with renowned artist Dwayne Simeon.

Moraes works in a variety of materials, including gold, silver, and precious stones. His skill as an engraver is evident in his beautiful and finely detailed jewelry and this has enabled him to bring an eye for detail to other media. In 1997, he painted canoes for the Vision Quest Journeys.  

Moraes' work can be seen in numerous publications, galleries, and collections in North America, England, and Japan. His designs have gained recognition through Garfinkel Publications, and the calendar “The Gathering,” which they release each year. Corey’s work has been featured in the American Museum of Natural History’s traveling exhibit “Totems to Turquoise” and on the cover of Ornament Magazine. Recently in 2010, Moraes received the Aboriginal Traditional Visual Art Award and Grant from the Canada Council for the Arts.
