Sanford Williams has made it his life’s work creating art that echoes the past of the First Nations folk of British Columbia. Born and raised on the west coast of Vancouver Island in the remote village of Yuquot, Sanford Williams was inspired by his relatives, notably his uncle – the late Chief Dominic Andrew.

After surviving residential school, Williams graduated in 1985 then attended the Gitanmaax School of Northwest Coast Indian Art at ‘Ksan in Old Hazelton, BC.

Since completing the course in 1988, Sanford Williams has worked independently as a Master Carver – every single day. Throughout the years he has proudly participated in many events and has donated pieces to many noteworthy organizations including The Bill Reid Gallery and Vancouve
