Glen Rabena was born in Wapato, Washigton. He began carving in Northwest Coast style in Seattle in 1970. The following year he moved to Quesnel, B.C. During 1975 and 1976 he studied at Kitanmax School of Northwest Coast Art at Ksan. An accomplished artist in wood, gold, sliver, and ivory, Rabena is probably best known for his bird serigraphs. His love of nature comes through in his graphic designs, which tend to be less traditional than his other work. The ability to capture the spirit of his subject naje his prints much sought after by both Northwest Coast and wildlife collectors.
