Exploring 2 dimensional design, cedar weaving, painting and taking part in multiple design workshops taught by Robert Davidson in Old Massett and Skidegate.
Cori is a former recipient of the YVR youth scholarship award as well as the YVR Frank O’Neill visionary award. These awards enabled her to begin and maintain a formal apprenticeship working with renowned Haida artist Reg Davidson in Old Masset. Over the course of 8 years, Cori learned carving techniques applicable to masks, sculptures and monumental works, taking part in multiple totem pole projects.
Cori now lives and works from her home studio in Skidegate, Haida Gwaii, and maintains a working relationship with her mentor Reg. She also worked closely with mentor Ben Davidson between 2012-2020, expanding her knowledge and skills in painting and carving as well as learning jewelry techniques in chasing and repousse in his studio and gallery in Skidegate.
We are very excited to start doing projects with Cori and feel connected to her use of formline and aesthetics. Next time we are visiting Beautiful Haida Gwaii we will definitely meet her in person.
