Doug Cranmer was born in Alert Bay, B.C. in 1927. In the 1950s, he received his first formal instruction from Kwakwaka'wakw master carver Mungo Martin. At about the same time, Cranmer met Bill Reid, and began working with him at the Museum of Anthropology, carving five totem poles and supervising the construction of the two Haida houses that are now located on the Museum's grounds.

After completing the UBC project in 1962, Cranmer (with A.J. Scow and Dick Bird) founded a retail gallery, The Talking Stick. This was one of the few initiatives at the time through which First Nations art was marketed by First Nations people. (In the 1940s, Kwakwaka'wakw carver Ellen Neel started the first such outlet in Stanley Park, Vancouver). Cranmer also worked for many years as a carving teacher at 'Ksan (in Hazelton, B.C.), at the Vancouver Centennial Museum (now the Vancouver Museum), and in Alert Bay. He has been an inspiration to his home community, contributing extensively to the construction of the U'mista Cultural Centre and the newly-built Bighouse at Alert Bay. His artworks are displayed in many public and private collections. Doug passed away in 2006 after a long and inspired career.If you would like additional photos/information or to purchase this item, sell work by this artist or have a question please fill out this form:
