Maverick T Valkyrie
About the Author
Maverick T Valkyrie established himself as a Folk Artist on Prince Edward Island over twenty years ago. His work is enjoyed across the Maritimes, and even as far away as Japan. In 1998 he was commissioned to create a piece for former Prime Minister Jean Chretien. Called, “Between Both Worlds”, the small statue featured a child holding a planet in each hand, and was symbolic of the issue of child poverty in Canada, a subject that is close to Mr.Valkyries heart. The artist is especially known for his distinctive chainsaw carvings, exotic-wood plaques, and paintings.
As a musician, Maverick recorded a 45 vinyl single at the age of 21, and also released a full-length C.D. featuring eight original songs. His most recent recording was The George’s Grill Project, a tribute to a thirty-year veteran of the corner store trade, Charlottetown’s George Rashed. As lead singer for “Silver Fire”, he entertained audiences across the Island, making time each month to support charitable organizations such as the I.W.K., and the Charlottetown Food Bank. Maverick also made families with sick and terminally ill children a priority through benefit performances and fund-raisers.
After writing “The Begerkz – Shipwrecked On Planet Earth” for his imaginative children, Valkyrie decided to bring the characters to life as puppets. Kaluka, Laleafa, Motley and Koo Koo will soon star in their own movie short, which will be produced with the help of funding from Tech P.E.I. Maverick has been writing for over 25yrs, since age 18.
