Tlingit Indian from Kake, Alaska. 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.
