  • NANCY DAWSON (1954)

Nancy Dawson is an artist based out of Alert Bay on Vancouver Island. Although she is most well known for her amazing jewellery, she never passes up the opportunity to reproduce her jewellery designs in large, colourful cedar carvings. Dawson gained her craftsmanship and knowledge from her Mother and the potlatch circle she was raised in, which contributed greatly to her understanding of her culture and art.
