Artist Statement : "In the bay in front of our village of Fort Rupert there is a variety of birds, sea life and some animals. All of my designs are inspired by looking out our kitchen window. Through ones life we spend it learning from our parents and elders. So too do the birds, animals and sea creatures. Our parents always said 'You learn 'til the day you die.'" - Ross Hunt. Sr.
