Photo's do not do this piece justice. Looks a lot better in person. Myles Edgars was born in 1958 in Queen Charlotte City on Haida Gwaii to Haida parents Jimmy and Minnie Edgars. He has been carving since he was 13 years old. He learned how to make his own tools form Richard Yeltatzie a young artist who died in a plane crash in 1974.
He used to babysit for his sister and her husband Steven Collison who was an artist at that time and who showed Myles how to carve and improve on his carvings as he completed each peice. Myles has lived on Haida Gwaii all his life. He enjoys carving the black slate known as argillite and makes many beaufiful pieces every year. Mostly pendnat size peices in argillite.
