Allan Davidson was raised in Old Massett on Haida Gwaii, and now resides in North Vancouver. He is a descendant of the St'langng Laanas Raven Clan from Kungaileng. His crests include Thunderbird, Cumulus Cloud, Hawk, and Orca. His brother, argillite carver Alfred Davidson, sparked Allan's interest in Haida art. He pursued a career in Anthropology, and worked as an archaeologist until 2010, when he began learning woodcarving and silver engraving from established Haida artist Jay Simeon. He has also received guidance from Haida artists Jim McGuire and Ron Russ.
