Keywords: Folk Art

 Charlie Tanner started working on a fishing schooner at age 13, and later was involved in the movement of alcohol from St. Pierre to New York state. He eventually bought his own small fishing boat and earned a living from inshore fishing. Charlie started carving when he retired in 1974, and had developed the distinctive style, by which his carvings are readily recognized, by 1975. His work is included in the collections of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, the Canadian Museum of Civilization, and many private collections throughout North America.
