Lawrence or Larry Rosso was from the Wet'suwet'en (or Carrier) Nation, situated in the area around Smithers, B.C. Canada. Larry was taught by Doug Cranmer and his work was often inspired by Kwakiutl or Kwakwaka'wakw designs and traditions. In the late 1970's Larry started operating a printing business that specialized on printing limited edition prints for many native artists like Robert Davidson, Roy Henry Vickers and also for himself. In the late 1980's Larry worked together and apprenticed with Robert Davidson.
