Don Yeomans

Born in Prince Rupert (BC), Don Yeomans studied and worked in the Haida style from an early age. With a Haida father from Masset (BC) and a Métis mother from Slave Lake (AB) he first apprenticed under the expert guidance of his aunt Freda Diesing in the early 1970s. Soon after, he attended art school at Vancouver Community College in 1976 and later began working with Haida artist Robert Davidson. After more than four decades, he has mastered many different media, including two-dimensional design, woodcarving, and gold and silver jewellery. Don Yeomans' art can be found in many private and public collections.
