About Rob

"Hi Rob, I just wanted to let you know that the Hamatsa Raven mask arrived today safely and it is beyond our wildest hopes - it is so beautiful. My wife and I can't begin to thank you enough for your passion, attention to detail and care in dealing with us on such a difficult and challenging art project. Our wellness center is now complete with the huge Hamatsa mask hanging in the front entrance to welcome all our new guests. Thank You"

It starts with a passion for the art
Growing up the son of a career bush pilot is the foundation of this gallery. I spent countless hours flying with my father during the summers into remote Canadian First Nations communities. Flying throughout both the high Arctic, central and western provinces in my youth whetted my interest in the people, their history, culture and ultimately a passion for their art. Austdone Gallery is the ultimate expression of that passion.

It has grown into a community of interest
Since 1998 I have been working directly with First Nations artists to bring their artwork to galleries, museums, collectors and corporate collections worldwide. I also offer comprehensive acquisition, installation and marketing consultation  for galleries, exhibitions, corporate collections, destination resorts, industry and private collectors. The Austdone Gallery is designed much like a small community, a place for people with a common interest to gather.
