Alison Bremner is a Tlingit artist born and raised in Southeast Alaska. She delves into her rich and complex culture through paintings, jewellery, drums and regalia.
“Tlingit art is not just art – it is an internal compass, a connection to who we are as people and where we come from.”
Having been raised in both her native and non-native cultures, Alison brings a unique perspective to her art. In addition to traditional formline, she explores contemporary formline as well as surrealist painting.
“There is a misconception that all First Nations people are stoic and somber. I seek to shed light on our sense of humor in order to view the full picture of the modern native.”
Alison has learned from master artists Cheryl Samuel and David R. Boxley. She is inspired by ancient traditions and modern coffee. Alison’s work is included in the permanent collections of the British Museum.
