Cherrish Alexander

I started my training in 2007 at Freda Diesing School of Art in Terrace BC. I was the first woman in the very first year of the program. My Instructors were, Stan Bevan, Ken Mcneil and Dempsy Bob. My artwork is my life's passion; I enjoy bringing the art back to my community of Gitwangak.


“Cherish’s aspirations are to be able to create art and teach youth, she gets much of her inspiration from her community of Gitwangak, which has some of the oldest poles still standing, her wish is to one day be able to carve a pole for her people.”


Cherrish Alexander is a carver from Kitwanga, B.C.
