About the Author:

I have lived in Alaska since 1970, when I moved here to teach art at Mt. Edgecumbe High School in Sitka. Mt. Edgecumbe was a boarding school that served students from all over the state at a time when there were no village high schools.  It exposed me to the various native cultures in Alaska. My experience there enabled me to see village live through the eyes of my students; the result is my idealized, stylized imagery  that celebrates the joy, resilience, and the hard work that characterizes their lives.   

My work is done in transparent watercolor.  I focus on people, rather than landscape (although the Alaskan landscape is stunning), and I love to play hot colors against a white background.
