About Jeremy Humpherville and Douglas Fisher
Douglas J Fisher
Douglas is a full-time artist living on Vancouver Island, Canada. He was encouraged by his parents to be whatever he wanted to be, which as a young boy was to sail around the world, single-handed, like Joshua Slocum. So he learned how to sail, going on to own various boats and crew aboard several ocean going vessels, including the famous sailing yacht "Iolaire", which he sailed throughout the Caribbean and across the Atlantic Ocean.
Prior to becoming a full-time artist, Douglas taught skiing and sailing, sold real estate, was an ironworker, and worked in several underground gold mines as a driller and blaster. Stage acting has been his hobby since the early 90's.
Since 1992 Douglas has been involved almost exclusively in creating some form of art, including painting, stained glass, photography, pen and ink drawing, and woodworking. Wood sculptures, primarily made using a lathe followed by hand carving have been his focus since 1997.
Douglas has graced the covers of almost every major woodturning magazine in the world and he has been sought after internationally as a demonstrator, lecturer and teacher. His works have been in many international exhibitions and are in private collections around the world.
Jeremy is an aboriginal artist, born and raised in Haida Gwaii, on the Northwest Coast of British Columbia, to an aboriginal father and European mother. Jeremy has inherited his artistic talents through several generations of his father's family. From the age of merely two years old, Jeremy's entertainment was a pencil and paper. As a youth he did not spend his time watching television, but was encouraged to draw. He was not expected to become a career artist, but was constantly challenged to pursue his creative abilities by his artistic father, Keith Humpherville.
Jeremy grew up in a community rich in talent and culture. As a young boy he would watch renowned Native artist, Bill Reid, carving in the local museum. The many forms and techniques passed on through generations of Northwest Coast native art provide a basis for limitless combinations of design. Respecting these design elements, Jeremy adds his own distinct style to the art.
Jeremy's work has been displayed throughout Europe as well as in shows and galleries in North America. Jeremy had the fortune of being the art sponsor for the President William J. Clinton Gala fund raiser in support of British Columbia's Children's Hospital Foundation.
"With our combined artistic vision, followed by superb craftsmanship, Jeremy and I have been creating some of the most thought provoking, powerful and inspiring works of our careers." - Douglas Fisher
