Douglas Fisher &
Jeremy Humpherville

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.

Jeremy grew up in a community rich in talent and culture. The many forms and techniques used in north west coast native art provide a basis for limitless combinations of design. Respecting these design elements he strives to add his own distinct style to the art by means of his original creations.

His work has been displayed throughout Europe as well as in shows and galleries in North America. In his home province of British Columbia, Canada, Jeremy had the fortune of being the art sponsor of the President William J. Clinton gala fund raiser in support of British Columbia’s children’s hospital foundation. Featured were his carvings from private collections and pieces he created for the event.
