Starving: Native Artist in Toronto

In order to create this piece I needed either someone to commission a totempole, save the money myself or get an arts grant. Luckily for me the Ontario arts council liked my proposal and three years after I did my initial sketch I had funds to start carving. However even with the funds from the OAC I needed some good will from Henry green and a part time job to complete this project. With my job and other projects lateral to the totem pole it took me six months to complete. I will be showing the totem pole in early spring 2010.
