Artist Statement: “I was born and raised in Juneau, Alaska. My Family has lived here for generations. My grandfather is Tlingit. He is the only grandfather from my dad’s side that I’ve known. My grandmother got remarried to him before I was born, so I’m not blood-related to him.
I learned art from school and my family. I became passionate about creating art over the years. When I start making art, time flies as I plunge into it.”
“This painting is of a killer whale done in a Northwest Coast Native Formline style. I used mixed media paper and drew the design pencil and then used acrylic paint.
