"Our art retells our ancestors’ stories about our connection to the land that we have respectfully lived on for thousands of years. Francis Horne is largely a self-taught carver but has also learned from his elders, especially Chief Simon Charlie, an accomplished artist. Horne has four talented brothers that also carve; Aubrey, Doug, Howard, and Perry LaFortune.
From 1986 to 1987, he carved four poles for the town of Duncan, BC, on Vancouver Island and also began working in silver to create jewelry. He mostly works in the traditional Northern style. Horne’s totem poles have been acquired from collectors around the world and are known for their clean and detailed carvings. In 1988, he was invited to Singapore to demonstrate totem pole carving.
