Northwest Coast Art Print

This is a photograph of a print in the Northwest Coast art style, depicting Thunderbird seizing Killer Whale. The owner would like more information about the artist. The signature is difficult for me to read; the owner believes it says "Doug Lo John" or "Doug Lo Johns."

Solved: One of our First Nations volunteers has identified this artist. He is Doug Lafortune, a prominent Coast Salish carver and painter. Here are two Native art galleries showcasing his work:
Sa-Cinn Carvings
Northwest Native Arts
