Randy Stiglitz was born in 1956 on the Capilano Reservation in North Vancouver, British Columbia. He began carving in the early 1970s during the first resurgence in Northwest Coast art and culture. This was also the earliest stages of the development of the Northwest Coast art market. Many of the Coast Salish began their careers working in Kwakwaka’wakw style because it had an immediate presence in the market through commissions such as the Thunderbird Park project in Victoria. It also offered the largest range of objects and the collector interest was already established.
