More About Trevor Angus

Trevor Angus (Tka'ast) completed three years of training at the Gitanmaax School of Northwest Coast Indian Art at 'Ksan in Hazelton, BC. He studied under Gitksan master carvers Ken Mowatt and Vernon Stephens, and spent six weeks training in jewellery under Art Wilson. He has also worked with Haida artist Shawn Edenshaw and Nisga'a artist Robert Tait. In 2013 and 2014, Trevor completed the Northwest Coast Jewellery Arts program at Vancouver's Native Education College, learning repoussé and stone-setting techniques. He apprenticed with renowned Gitksan jeweller Phil Janzé, engraving silver and gold jewellery.

Angus creates his panel works in cedar wood, incorporating traditional K'san style and design. He is a practiced carver and his pieces are thoughtful, consistent, and deeply etched. He now lives and carves full time in Vancouver. 

Trevor about his design for Native Northwest products:

"ÒIt is amazing having my designs on a range of Native Northwest products. It is a good way to share my art and get my name out there. My art can now be easily afforded and allows people to enjoy an item with one of my designs on it."
