Artist Bio: 

Robert is of Métis Culture and resides in Aklavik, NT with his wife and son. He makes handcrafted jeweler from a variety of metals, stones, ivory, mammoth, baleen and natural materials found in and around the Mackenzie Delta. He is also a painter and photographer.

His art education began with a Fine Arts Certificate in 1996. He received a Jewellery and Metalwork Diploma in 2001. Robert has exhibited works at the Museum of Civilization in Ottawa, Ontario, Spirit Wrestler Gallery in Vancouver, British Columbia and at the Houston North Gallery in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.

Robert loves being out on the land where he finds plenty of ideas for his work in the appreciation of landscape, colours, natural shapes, and wildlife. Inspired while out on the land, Bob says, “Artwork records the thoughts of a certain time, or the life of a given time.”
