About Rob

"My husband and I were so pleased when we found your site as it had unique and beautiful pieces at a range of very reasonable prices. The assistance that Rob and his staff provided for our cross-Canada purchase went above and beyond what we expected. Their experience and consideration meant that our gift was directly mailed to our friends prior to their wedding, complete with a card of congratulation included. Thanks for such a great experience!"

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.
