Mitch Adams was born in 1961 in Prince Rupert and now lives in Terrace, BC. Mitch was in Freda Diesing’s first carving class at the age of 8, and developed an interest in carving six years ago. His father, Ivan Adams, is a carver, engraver and musician who taught Mitch how to engrave. Ivan continues to be an inspiration for Mitch.
“I have a deep appreciation for Northwest Coast native art, being surrounded by artists like my father and by having carvers and weavers in my family. I feel their guidance in my work.”
