Anthony Antoine is a gifted Dene sculptor who uses his hands to create beautiful art. Though he was born in the Northwest Territories, he has been firmly rooted in Edmonton for the past 15 years.

“I still have a lot of family back home, but when you are raising a family of your own there’s not always a lot of time or money available to travel,” he said, noting that he hasn’t been back to his home in Ft. Simpson since 2011. “I have a wife and three children to care for and I am trying to establish myself as a bona-fide artist willing to go the extra step for those who are interested in purchasing my work.”

The 51 year old artist has worked with various media but noted that “art is my life and it’s how I make a living. Although I have dabbled in such things as painting over the years, my greatest pleasure and the one that gives me the most satisfaction is sculpting and carving.”
