Tracy Starr

Tsimshian (Killerwhale Clan)

My name is Tracy Starr, from the Tsimshian Nation, Gisbutwada (Killerwhale Clan). Born in Prince Rupert, BC, and raised in Lax Kw’alaams with my father’s people. We are originally from Kitkatla.

Inspired by my mother Melodie Johnson (née Starr), I have been carving since 2003. From 2003-07 my mentor was Merlin Robinson. I have assisted with carving the two totem poles which are now the entrance sign to Laxgalts’ap (Greenville, BC). I have also worked on plaques, paddles, bowls, and paintings. As a child growing up I watched my mother carve wood, silver jewellery, weave baskets, and make button blankets. I knew one day I would follow in her footsteps.

For the past few years my focus has been developing my own carving style and in perfecting the art of fine-line painting and design. I currently reside in Merritt, BC, with my children. My specialty is in carving and painting miniature wood masks and amulets. My goal is to eventually carve jewellery.
