Henry Green

A member of the Tsimshian nation, Henry Green was born and raised in Port Simpson, BC. As a member of a family and community rich in tradition, Green's earliest training in carving was alongside his father, who taught him the language of Chinook.

 

He has been influenced by the work of renowned artists such as Don Yeomans and George Clutesi. He has also been fortunate enough to apprentice under the expert tutelage of well-known Haida artist, Freda Diesing and to have worked alongside accomplished Haida carvers Alvin Adkins and Garner Moody. In the 1980’s he completed formal art training at the Emily Carr College of Art and Design in Vancouver, BC and at the Institute of San Miguel D’Allende in Mexico.

 

As an established designer and Carver, Henry Green produces fine jewelry in silver and gold as well as works in wood.
