Robin Pacific, Artist
“I think I inspire courage in people I meet and work with in various capacities. In Northwest Coast indigenous stories, the raven is the only creature who has the courage to fly into the darkness, and he returns carrying the sun in his beak. I think I inspire people to go into the dark places of life and the soul, and to return with the light.” – Robin Pacific
