Joe Wilson is a Coast Salish artist born in 1967 in Koksilah, BC. He is a member of the Cowichan Band based on Vancouver Island. Joe developed an interest in Northwest Coast art at a young age after watching his stepfather, artist Johnny Sampson, at work. He he has been carving since the age of 17. Although mainly self-taught, Joe worked under Hesquiaht/Nuu-chah-nulth artist Tim Paul, and the late Coast Salish master carver Simon Charlie. Joe is deeply involved in the winter ceremonies of his people, and his artwork is defined by his attention to detail and use of unconventional colours.
The Hummingbird is the joyful messenger and a symbol of health. When a Hummingbird appears, healing will follow.
The Moon is a symbol of protection and is often referred to as a guardian. It is also associated with transformation, due to its influence over the tides in the ocean and and the colour of the sky.
