Baker, Marvin Dana

Marvin Dana Baker is a member of the Coast Salish First Nation, Squamish, originating from Capilano Reservation, BC, Canada. Born in 1951, he started carving when he was 12 years old and credits his father Benjamin Dick and his prominent artist brother Beau Dick for influencing him to begin carving.

Marvin loves to use the burl section of yellow and red cedar as his medium for carving. In the many years Marvin has been carving for several exhibitions he has been invited to and has assisted in numerous monumental commissions. Marvin said one of his most memorable events was being invited to carve fifteen “Sea Monster Masks” for the APEC Summit Meeting held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in 1997. Each mask was a gift to the respective heads of state of the participating nations.
