Tofino artist Mark Mickey


Mark Mickey was born on April 5, 1956 to Charlie & Caroline Mickey in the village of Hesquiat, about 40 miles northwest of Tofino. He grew up in Tofino, where both of his parents worked and lived. Mark credits his parents – both of them artists – for teaching and inspiring him to start carving in 1968.

Mark took a keen interest in the traditional art of the Nuu Chah Nulth people and benefitted greatly from his parents’ teaching of the traditional ways. He has four children of his own and it is now his turn to pass this knowledge on to his own family.

Mark has developed a style very much his own and enjoys carving masks and bowls out of the harder woods found in the area. Mark is also known for his finely detailed miniature masks.

Mark’s sculptures are found in collections around the world and he is well on his way to become one of the premiere Nuu Chah Nulth artists.

His work can be seen at the House of Himwitsa Art Gallery on Main Street in Tofino. He also participates in the Tofino Artist Studio Tour.
