Rande Cook was born and raised in culture-rich Alert Bay, a small village on the Northern tip of Vancouver Island. With a strong connection to his grandparents, grandfather Gus Matilpi taught him the essential values of his culture. Learning to dance and sing traditionally, Rande developed a strong connection to the art form. It was then that Rande put pressure on his grandfather to teach him the elements of traditional art, something that lived deep in the heart of his people. Rande knew he wanted to be an artist from an early age.
