Eric Parnell is a Canadian, Native Art artist. His artistic heritage as a member of the Eagle clan of British Columbia’s Haida Nation goes back many centuries. Eric describes himself as “self-taught,” saying that “books were my teachers”.
It was time for a change. Time for something new and my minds been swirling around the idea of sharing my brand in a way that would unite creativity.
A collaboration idea has been in my mind’s vault for some time, and meeting Eric Parnell, an extremely talented West Coast Haida Art artist was the key to that vault.
Being that my original creative talent stems from a paint brush, appreciating Eric’s work was easy. I absolutely love his work. His style of art easily compliments my moose hide and deerskin leather wears. It is fitting and tells the simple story of uniting different cultures together.
When Eric shared his piece entitled ‘The Eagle’ with me, I instantly knew our collaboration was meant to be.
Revealing ‘The Eagle’ has a very deep and personal meaning for me. Being of Polish descent, we turn to The Eagle as it is Poland's Coat Of Arms, our Polish Crest. I am proud that Eric and I will not only share our work together, but unite different cultures together too. In a world of diversity and cultural differences, I’m delighted to be part of this collaboration. Eric’s deep rooted Indigenous culture has gifted him with his artistic talent, respectfully, royalties are given from sales of every item.
