Dennis Shorty

Dennis Shorty is a member of the Wolf Clan, Kaska people. He was born and raised in the beautiful Ross River area and is considered a Yukon First Nation Master Carver. His grandfather and father carved in wood and antler; a tradition carried on by Dennis.

Dennis says, ''There is a spirit in everything and creating art is a powerful spiritual act.
To create and share art is a kind of communication and expression from the artist to the viewer.
It's my way of sharing traditional legend, which was past down to me by my family.''

He also paints in acrylic and oil on canvas.
