Rylan Amos, born 1977, is a member of the Hesquiat First Nation (part of the Nuu-chah-nulth or also called Nootka First Nations Group), originating from the Pacific North West coast of Vancouver Island. He started carving when he was 10 years old in 1987. Now, he has lots of experience and clearly the love and talent for this art form. He frequently works with his father, Nuu-chah-nulth carver Patrick Amos, and has completed a four-year apprenticeship with Nuu-chah-nulth artist Tim Paul. He commonly works in red and yellow cedar, as well as alder and yew wood.
