TSF 2017 ARTIST
“Being surrounded by Haida art developed into Eric’s love for the art form. Eric Parnel learned by watching older artists and by practising and doodling. Studying Haida art and culture resulted in a journey of self discovery of finding out about his family, community and myself. Eric’s paintings are very personal as they reflect the ongoing connection of Eric’s identity to his culture. Each painting takes Eric another step forward and offers inspiration, sanctuary and healing.”
Eric Parnel designed the Bear image that we used for our Kids Colouring Contest.
