Stan Greene, born in 1953, is an artist of Coast Salish and Nez Perce Decent. He attended the Kasan School of Native Art in Hazelton B.C. in 1977, and has been carving for a living for the past 22 years.
Stan’s clean and precise carvings are done predominantly in the Tsimshian and Salish styles.
Stan has created a variety of works in wood such as face masks, totem poles, Salish sculptures, 20-50 foot canoes as well as smaller items such as rattles, spoons and bowls. He also works in glass using sandblasting and engraving methods, and has done a number of silkscreen prints and original paintings.
Through the years Stan has displayed his art in various solo exhibitions, and in 1987 was commissioned to carve a 27-foot totem pole that was installed in Yokohama, Japan. It was a very memorable personal experience for Stan because he traveled to Japan to be a part of the raising and installation of the pole.
