Joe, Edward

Cultural Group : Cowichan, Coast Salish

Salish artist Edward Joe was born in 1969 and is a member of the Cowichan Band. Born and raised in Ladysmith, B.C., he works in both traditional and contemporary styles and finds that most of these designs come from visions in his mind and spirit. He is involved in the cultural life of his community, participating in traditional ceremonies and spirit dances. After receiving a Diploma from the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, Edward then continued his studies at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico. This talented young artist is gaining recognition through exhibitions and is continuing to expand his skills with work in a variety of mediums.*
