Joe, Betty Denis

Betty Joe, a Cowichan/Kwakwaka'wakw was born in Duncan, B.C. in 1967. She is a worldwide known female aboriginal artist. Betty takes the Sea Wolf as her family crest. She has strong relations to the Coast Salish and learned to carve under the great, late Simon Charlie. Betty's connection to the Charlie family comes through her grandmother - her father is Abraham Joe, and Abraham Joe's mother is Anna Charlie. Anna is the sister of late the Pat Charlie, and Pat Charlie was Simon Charlie's father. This makes the late Simon Charlie, Betty's Uncle. The family ties are very close, as Simon Charlie and Abraham Joe were raised together as children. Betty uses Alder, Red Cedar, Yellow Cedar and Pine Wood for all of her carvings.

Betty has been carving for over 20 years and has accomplished many amazing masks and sculptures. Her carvings are known and collected world wide - easy recognizable for their unique curves and style - the female touch.
