Carey Newman is a Kwagiulth artist born on February 15th, 1975. Under the influence and support of his mother & father, Carey developed his artistic ability and cultural knowledge from an early age. Artistry is in his blood; his father Victor, his great grandfather Charlie James, and his great aunt Ellen Neel are all renowned wood carvers. Being of British, Kwagiulth & Salish descent allows him to draw inspiration from each culture, mastering as many techniques and mediums as possible as one of the keys to his continued success.
“When I embark on a journey, I may not have a clear idea of where I am going but… perhaps I do not need one. This is terrain where ancient tradition smothers the ember of modern idea. A woodland so dense with archaic ritual, that smothers the rains of April, and the sunshine of May, are not allowed the opportunity to renew the undergrowth. I will plant my seedling, hoping perhaps someday it will grow into prominence among its forefathers” – Carey Newman
