Patrick Amos

Tribal Affiliation: Nuu-chah-nulth of the Mowachaht
Birth date: 1957
Birthplace: Friendly Cove, Nootka Island, British Columbia

Patrick Amos began his career creating limited edition prints for the Provincial Museum in Victoria. He, then took to carving, apprenticing under the highly respected Northwest Coast, Kwakwakw'wakw artist, Tony Hunt Sr. He carves masks, bowls, totem poles and rattles and limited edition prints in the Nuu-chah-nulth tradition. Having been raised in the rugged and mystical landscape of the West Coast of Vancouver Island, his understanding of Nuu-chah-Nulth culture has been an inspiration to his work. In the early eighties, the Royal British Columbia Museum in Victoria commissioned Patrick to create a totem pole along side his step father and mentor, Tim Paul. Patrick's work is collected world-wide.
