Good, Joel

Joel Good is a member of the Snuneymuxw First Nation, Coast Salish, in Nanaimo, B.C., Vancouver Island, British Columbia’s Northwest Coast of Canada.

His works in Coast Salish designs are derived from the traditional legends taught to him by master artist and historian William Good, and through extensive research into the original archived style. Another significant source of inspiration is his mother, artist and painter, Sandra Moorhouse Good, who herself had been trained as a classical painter by her grandfather.

Joel carves in red and yellow cedar, and mixes his paints in the traditional coast Salish colors. He bends his own steam bent wood boxes in the customary style of his tribe. Joel’s artwork is the perfect combination of his traditional Coast Salish roots and his family’s classical painting origin. He uses all of his influences to have his own unique traditional style, which blends the teachings of both of his parents. He combines accuracy, passion, and inspiration to create every masterpiece
