Born in Victoria, in 1986, Qwul’thilum (Dylan Thomas) is a Coast Salish artist from the Lyackson First Nation. Dylan was exposed to the art at a young age because his family continues to participate in their culture and tradition. He has done some training in jewelry with Seletze (Delmar Johnnie) and is currently apprenticing under Rande Cook in all mediums of the art. Rande has also been a major help in the development of Dylan’s design. His other artistic influences have been late Art Thompson, Susan Point and Robert Davidson.
