More About Mervin Windsor
Haisla – Heiltsuk artist Mervin Windsor was born in Kitimat 1964. He comes from a long line of artists originating in Bella Bella. He developed his love for First Nations art in high school. His initial inspiration came from renowned Haisla artist Lyle Wilson and his older brother Ron Jr. and some friends in high school. One of Mervin’s main accomplishments was a commissioned piece he did for the Rotary Club of Kitimat to depict the four way test (The Rotary international motto – in which they believe) in native art form. For that particular print, there were buyers from around the world, such as from Great Britain, Germany, Australia, etc.
"I feel a responsibility to share my art and honour the presence of the Indigenous people of this land."
