Artist Statement : Ross has been expressing his art in carving for the past thirteen years. His teachers have been Henry Hunt, Tony Hunt, his younger brother Calvin Hunt, and John Livingston. Ross had been carving at the Arts of the Raven workshop in Victoria B.C. before recently moving back to Fort Rupert where his parents are from. The "Kwa-Gulth Crane" is Ross' first print and was inspired by the paintings of Mungo Martin. This design is an interpretation of Southern Kwaguilth traditional form.
