In 1957 Patrick Amos was born on Nootka Island located off of the west coast of Vancouver Island into the Mowachaht Band, one of the fourteen member tribes of the Nuu Chah Nulth Nation. Since 1976 Patrick has been designing limited edition prints. In 1979 he began carving wood, apprenticing with Tony Hunt Sr. in Victoria, B.C.

Later he apprenticed with Tim Paul at the Royal B.C. Museum carving shed in Victoria, where he assisted with a few totem pole projects. In 1989/90 he assisted Tim Paul to carve a 36-foot Hesquiat totem pole for the Mauri people of New Zealand. The Royal B.C. Museum has several paintings and prints of Patrick’s in their permanent collection.

Increasingly Patrick Amos is being commissioned for larger works and he now takes on apprentices of his own to assist with these projects. Patrick is active in his community, giving carving demonstrations at various schools throughout the West Coast inspiring artists of the next generation.

Visit the House of Himwitsa Gallery in Tofino to view Patrick’s carvings.
