Heritage — Kwakwaka'wakw
Andy Everson was born in Comox, British Columbia in 1972. He is named “Nagadzi” after his grandfather, Chief Andy Frank.
Andy began drawing at an early age and has developed his Kwakiutl art in various mediums, from beautiful limited edition prints and giclees to designing and painting Chilkat blankets for use in potlatch dancing.
He has followed in the footsteps of his Kwakiutl relatives in creating bold and unique representations that remain rooted in the age-old traditions of his ancestors.
Andy has completed a Master’s degree in Anthropology and founded “Copper Canoe, Inc.”, a company that produces aboriginal language CD-Roms.
