Eric Parnell

Cultural Background: Haida, Masset Band, Prince Rupert, BC

A self-taught Haida artist born in Prince Rupert, BC in 1961, Eric is a member of the Masset Band. His crest is the Eagle and his family clan is the Frog. While Eric has always been exposed to Haida art, he only started creating prints and paintings on a regular basis in 2002. Eric cites Bill Reid and Robert Davidson as his primary influences, and most of his pieces reflect classic Haida design. Eric's goal as an artist is to “continue to be a small part of the revival and continuity of our peoples' traditions.” Eric currently resides in Vancouver.
