Sean Brennan Biography & Art

My name is Sean Brennan. I was born December 13, 1982 at Grace Memorial Hospital in Vancouver, BC. I am the son of Haida argillite carver Richard Widen from Old Masset, Haida Gwaii. In my early years I grew up on Vancouver Island, but now I live in Old Masset with my two daughters Camelia and Ryleigh Jade. I have been working in the forestry industry trying to protect the cedar on Haida Gwaii. I want to carve argillite full time. I have carved many panels, pipes, totem poles and sculptures in argillite. I had my pieces in two art show at the Master’s Gallery in Calgary. My argillite pieces are also in the book Breathing Stone by author Carol Sheehan.
