Glenn Tallio learned to carve at a very young age from his father. Because of his deep understanding of Nuxalk traditions, many of his pieces are commissioned for ceremonial purposes. His work is in many museums, including the Canadian Museum of Civilization and the University of British Columbia Museum of Anthropology. He oversaw the creation of the Nuxalk longhouse in the Canadian Museum of Civilization.
