In 2005, Ernest started carving wood with Haida carver Christian White. This same year, he also won an Emerging Artist award from British Columbia’s Alliance for Arts and Culture. In 2009, Ernest graduated from Vancouver's Northwest Coast Jewellery Arts program under  established Kwakwaka'wakw/Haida artist Dan Wallace. In 2010, he worked on a large pole with Jim Hart, here at the Bill Reid Gallery in Vancouver, BC.
