Graham is a member of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in First Nation, and was born and raised in Dawson City. He worked as a Heritage Interpreter at Dänojà Zho Cultural Center in Dawson City, as well as an interpreter with Parks Canada before attending the Yukon College to further his artistic career, and from there transferred to OCAD University. Graham had since returned to the Yukon and is now living his childhood dream of working as a full time artist.

As a child he found inspiration in comic books, and puts a lot of what he learned in those days into his work today. Graham finds solace in creativity, and has always had an interest in art because, as an introvert, he felt it was a safe way to express himself. Graham’s art allows him to his connect with his emotions and his heritage. His art has been sent as far as the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and Australia, and is a part of collections such as the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in Heritage Department’s permanent collection and may be found on display at the Dänojà Zho Cultural Centre.
