Eric Parnell is a Canadian, Native Art artist. His artistic heritage as a member of the Eagle clan of British Columbia’s Haida Nation goes back many centuries. Eric describes himself as “self-taught,” saying that “books were my teachers”.

He studied the traditional Haida art forms in books on this subject, learning the formal descriptions of the shapes and subjects of paintings and carvings, and adapting and creating his own distinctive paintings within this tradition. He also began to share with other artists, absorbing their examples and suggestions, but always following his own inner vision of what he wanted to portray.

Eric specializes in limited edition prints but extends his impressive talent to drums, garments, table tops, ceremonial attire and now Leatherwear! 

The Haida Feather~ In some native nations, they use the eagle feather in talking circles. The feather gets past to whomever may be talking during a circle ceremony. It symbolizes respect, honor, love, humbleness, truth, natural power, strength, courage, wisdom and freedom, everything that is positive.
Eric has done a beautiful job of showcasing the Eagles face inside his feather image.
