Moy is a Nuu-Chah-Nulth artist from the village of Masayaht in Tla-o-qui-aht (Tofino, BC). A professional artist since 1994, Moy uses many different mediums such as wood, metal and stone. He believes that working in a single medium is restrictive to his artistic process. Although Moy is always very mindful of staying within the traditional rules and values of his culture, he strives to find ways to set himself apart from other artists.


"For me, the meaning of life is to learn about, and understand my cultural surroundings, so that this knowledge can be preserved and used in everyday life. Like our elders before us passed this knowledge on, so must we to our descendants. In this manner, respect becomes an integral part of life, respect for everything. I draw my knowledge and inspiration from the teachings of those whom I respect, and I incorporate these into everything I do."
