I am a Tlingit Indian from Kake, Alaska. I belong to the Tsaagweidi clan, Xaay Hit (Yellow Cedar House).
My Tlingit name is Xaashuch'eet. I am primarily a designer. Though I've always loved cedar and have been a woodcarver for many years, I find much freedom in design. I paint in acrylics and work in mixed media. I explore ways to represent contempory issues by using themes of re-creation and transformation.
In using non-traditional materials and styles I bridge the past to the present.
