Gerry Marks

Gerry Marks is a Canadian First Nations artist of Haida ancestry.

He grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia, the grandson of John Marks, a Haida artist.

Marks studied with the Haida carver Freda Diesing in Prince Rupert, B.C., starting in 1971 and later studied at Hazelton, B.C.

In 1977 Marks and Francis Williams carved a 25-foot totem pole in Masset, his ancestral Haida village on the Queen Charlotte Islands.
