Dora Edwards was born in 1985 on Kuper Island. At the age of 14, she learned the art of carving from her parents Connie Edwards and Larry James, who are both well-known Coastal Salish carvers. Their carving style is greatly influenced by Herman Peter, a fellow Coastal Salish Carver whose work is also very popular. Their artwork can be found in galleries in Victoria B.C. and all over Vancouver Island.
