Tony was born in 1959 in North Vancouver and has been carving for more than three decades.
Tony and his brother Darren Yelton learned carving skills from their father Mike Yelton. Master carver Marvin Baker and other elders taught them a lot about the art and the history of many designs. Tony has eight children, but still finds time to carve. His work shows the experience in his very own special talent and style.
