James Michels, born July 29th 1969 in Merrit B.C., is a highly accomplished Cree/Metis artist whose creations are held in high esteem by other artists and feverishly collected by knowledgeable collectors. His bentwood boxes and stunning panels can be regularly viewed in most of the major galleries of Northwest Coast artwork in both Canada and the United States. James Michels is presently working on a large commission of a series of bentwood boxes for the Canadian Government. Last year a series of his bentwood boxes were commissioned for the participants of the 2005 PGA Whistler Golf Skins game. As well, his artwork has been purchased by President Bill Clinton, former Prime Minister Paul Martin and singing legend Joni Mitchell. James is also sought after for his exceptional large carved panels and totem poles.
