I have been carving and working in the Tlingit style for almost fifteen years. The inspiration for my work comes from the old master carvers of the Pacific Northwest Coast. It was these old masters who laid the foundation and building blocks of this ancient art form. As an artist and carver I feel I have been given a significant role in carrying on the culture and traditions of my people for the future generations. It gives me a great sense of pride and accomplishment in doing so. I have never really looked at this work as a job or a career, but more as a way of life.
