One of Canada’s foremost artists, Bill Reid (1920-1998)is widely recognized as having revived the great tradition of Haida art. Born in Victoria, British Columbia, Reid has applied innovative techniques to his artistic legacy and has passed on his valuable knowledge to younger artists.
"Sharing my cultural knowledge with my patrons as well as with tribal members and teaching the art of Tlingit carving to upcoming Native carvers brings much purpose to my life. Leaving a legacy of work behind for the next generation to be inspired by is a life time goal that I strive to accomplish."
