Cicero began carving at the very young age of eight. He reveals that his inspiration to carve Northwest Coast Native artwork came from Mungo Martin, the father of Northwest Caoast art responsible for bringing the art back when it was nearly lost as a culture.

Cicero apprenticed under Simon Charlie for four years. Simon, a master carver, taught Cicero the traditional techniques of carving. With much experience and knowledge of his cultural mythology, Cicero has become a master carver himself
