Roy Henry Vickers
Roy Henry Vickers was born in 1946 in Greenville, BC. His father was a fisherman with half-Tsimshian, half-Heiltsuk ancestry; his mother, a teacher of British heritage. In 1973 Roy began studying traditional Native art at the Gitanmaax School of Northwest Coast Indian Art in Ksan, BC. Influenced by his mixed heritage, he developed a unique artistic style, which is immediately identifiable through its clean lines, vivid colours, and natural themes drawn from the rugged beauty of BC’s West Coast. Through merging the uncomplicated, stylized forms of his aboriginal ancestry with the realism of European art, Roy brings two worlds together and creates vibrant images that speak to a universal spirit. He is also an accomplished author, publisher and illustrator of several books. In 2006, he was made a member of the Order of Canada.
