Darren Yelton was born in North Vancouver, B.C. and began carving alongside his father and brothers at the age of 13. He has studied under numerous artists from the Squamish Indian Band, and took over the duties of totem pole carving before continuing to create as a freelance artist. His works reflect a rich ancestral and cultural history, as well as a deep connection to Canadian land that has been forged over thousands of years.
“The welcome designs that I created symbolize towards all people, that they can use this trail in peace and friendship”
