John Spence is a very talented carver of the Coast Salish People of the Squamish Nation.
He learned carving very early from his grandfather, Chief Simon Baker (native name: Khat-La-Cha) and from Richard Baker, another experienced carver.
John lives in North Vancouver and works full time as an artist.
His carvings are always very special, deep clean carved and sometimes painted. They are unique and show his creativity and experience.
