(1962- )

I was born in my grandfathers house in Gambell, Alaska. My teachers were my dad and my great uncle. As time passes, I spend more time on detail. My whole family has at some point depended on the native artwork for their livelihood.

I still enjoy eating traditional foods (walrus, whale, seal and fish). I prefer that over any other food. I hunt when given the opportunity.
