Earl Muldoe (also referred to as Muldon) began his training in carving under the tutelage of Duane Pasco in 1969 at the Gitanmaax School of Northwest Coast Art and Design, where he was one of the first graduates. Such was his natural talent that he began carving totem poles early in his career. Now a master carver, he works in diverse mediums such as wood, bone, gold and silver. Muldoe also creates paintings and prints and has worked alongside many of the more renowned Northwest Coast artists. He later taught at Gitanmaax.
Earl Muldoe is currently recognized as a Master Carver. His masks, totem poles and jewelry are represented in many important public and private collections. He is considered to be one of the great contemporary native carvers and has been acknowledged for his contribution to the revitalization of the Northwest Coast Native art form.
Muldoe has taken part in some of the largest commissions of Aboriginal art in North America. One of Muldoe’s most important works was the carved entry doors for the University Of British Columbia Museum Of Anthropology.
