I'm an Alaska Native artist who specializes in formline design. I was born in Ketchikan, Alaska and grew up with a strong connection to the land and to my Native American heritage, Tlingit. The Tlingit culture is often the main inspiration and vision behind my art pieces.
Creating art is how I stay connected with my Tlingit culture and a way to carry on some of the traditions my mother and ancestors always inspired me to do as a young boy. Through my art, I hope to teach people and shed more light on Tlingit culture. I also hope to inspire and encourage our younger generation of Alaska Natives and Native Americans to embrace their traditional culture in our modern day.
