When you think of a Native Artist from Albuquerque, New Mexico, the last thing that comes to mind is a Tlingit/Tsimpshian/Chippewa. My Mother comes Ketchikan and Craig, Alaska and my Father from White Earth, Minnesota. I Graduated with a Bachelors of Arts with a focus on Fine Art from Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado. I teach Native Art’s Carving at the Craig Middle and High school in Craig, Alaska. I have three Beautiful Children, two boys, a daughter, and very loving and supportive Wife. My medium of art is Northwest Coastal Form-line Design which branches into 2-D and 3-D carving and painting.
