Beau’s approach to creating Coast Salish Art is based on the teachings he has received from Elders in local Indigenous communities. Late Stz’uminus Master Carver and Elder ShYa’QuThut (Elmer Sampson) spent a great deal of time training Beau on the Land and in the carving shed. He shared that we are all connected.

The x’pey (Western red cedar) is not just a medium, it is a relative. A living, breathing being with a spirit that is transformed through carving, energy and ceremony into other forms.

Beau’s art is derived from the Land and stories from his people who have lived on this land since time immemorial.

His current public pieces are on display and in use in Snaw-Naw-As school, Gabriola Elementary School, Stz’uminus Community School, Tillicum Lelum Aboriginal Health Centre, Cowichan School District, Qualicum First Nations, and (Nanaimo) Footholds Therapy Centre.

Our cedar is responsibly and respectfully harvested from sustainable sources.
