August 17, 1953
North Vancouver, BC
Randy Stiglitz started carving in the early 1970s on North Vancouver's Capilano Reserve. He later moved to Victoria, BC, for four years, learning the Kwakwaka'wakw and Coast Salish styles and working with wood carvers at Thunderbird Park. Randy's pieces emphasize technique and detail, rather than specific cultural styles as his background is extremely diverse. In 2007, Randy was included in the Sharing Myths exhibition at Ohio's Sandusky Cultural Center. He is best known as a mask carver, but he also creates panels, bowls, and boxes.
