Owen B Walker was born in Moab, Utah and raised in very rural North Idaho. He graduated high school in Palmer, Alaska, where Northwest Native Art first stirred his soul. After achieving a degree in Sociology/Anthropology from Western Washington University, Owen focused on pre-historic peoples and places of the Pacific Northwest. This interest and his 40 plus years of living and working in the rural Pacific Northwest awakened a spiritual connection, which he chooses to express thru Northwest Coast Native Art.
Owen is a Master Goldsmith and Engraver with 35 years’ experience working in all kinds of jewelry styles and techniques. Northwest Coast Native Art is his chosen medium of expression, lifelong study and passion which he loves to share.
