Artist of the moment……Carol Young Bagshaw

 

Carol Young Bagshaw is a Haida artist renown for her carving skills. Carol Young Bagshaw was born Carol Young in the year 1953.

The artist represents the Eagle Clan.

What I enjoy most about this artist is her statement ,” Art gives my life meaning and purpose.” What a great artistic statement!

The artist is attending the Freda Diesing School of NorthWest Coast Art located in Terrace, British Columbia. She has won awards for being a great mature artist. Someone older than the normal student who shows great promise in becoming a professional artist.

She is renown for her carvings of various sizes. In 2000 she began to carve small figures, bowls, and canoes. Now masks are her favorite subject matter. The artist has enjoyed a life long love of working with the figure.

She usually works on a few masks at a time.

An image of a traditional First Nations woman is being used by the country of Canada for use on a coin that can be purchased in silver or gold.
