About Rob

"Wow is all I can say! What an experience it was for us to open the box, (which by the way was packed like it was supposed to survive being dropped from a plane!) and to see this amazing bentwood box. It is now the proud center piece in our chalet and our many guests almost always comment on it. Thanks again Rob for all your efforts. All the best,"

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.
