RICK HARRY

Artist (Sculpture, Painting, Engraving, Drawing)

I had the pleasure of meeting Rick (Xwalacktun) Harry when I was ten years old. He was collaborating with my mother to produce a carving that sits in the library of Guilford Park Secondary School in Surrey, B.C., Canada.

As a kid, I was struck by Rick’s ability to be kind to every student, every teacher and every person he seemed to be collaborating with.

I recently visited Rick at his house/ studio in Vancouver, B.C. to speak to him about making art and being an artist. I am very confident that his perspectives and work can inspire others as well.
