photo of kerri dick Kerri-Lynne Emily Dick was born in 1983 to Sherri and Beau Dick in Alert Bay, British Columbia. She started weaving when she was eight years old. From age 9 to 16 she moved up and down the coast, continuing to learn along the way from weavers Beau Dick, April Churchill, Donna Cranmer, Primrose Adams, and William White. She spent much time studying works in museum collections, too, including those by her ancestors Emily White and Isabel Edenshaw. Her father Beau Dick taught her how to carve.

She weaves in yellow and red cedar bark, spruce root, and wool, using the Ravenís Tail style. Sheís currently apprenticing in Chilkat-style weaving. She has a passion for sharing her knowledge, teaching the harvesting, cleaning, and preparing of cedar bark for rope to groups of school children, and since 2001, working one-on-one with a range of students, young and old.

Kerriís work is in public and private collections in North America and Europe. Here in BC, it is part of the permanent collections of the Museum of Northern British Columbia, , Uímista Cultural Society, and the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia.
