Carrie Matilpi

Carrie Matilpi was born in Vancouver, British Columbia. She is the daughter of Charles Harper and sister to Victoria Harper, both Master Carvers and jewellery artists. Her roots, like theirs, are in the Kwakwaka’wakw (formerly Kwakiutl) Nation on Cormorant Island northeast of Vancouver Island in the community of Alert Bay.

Over more than ten years, Carrie has established herself as a masterful and proficient carver in the urban arts community in Vancouver. Carrie, like her sister Victoria, is a rare female carver in a male dominated profession. She is known for her deep and precise carving style.

Carrie lives in Vancouver where she shares a small studio with her father, sister and friends.
