I am winding down my summer printing at Alaska Indians Arts and actually got a lot of work done. In eight weeks I printed nine editions; one a John Hagen design for Alaska Indian Arts, two for Wrangell, Alaska artist Allie High and six for Seattle glass artist Preston Singletary. I drove out to Chillkoot Lake one day and caught this amazing photo of a mother bear in the middle of the Chillkoot River with a big Sockeye salmon in her mouth. She was taking it to her two cubs who were in the bushes on the riverbank.
I have been coming to Haines, Alaska in the summer for 18 years to make limited edition serigraphs for Native Americans. Before Alaska I was printing Native Artwork in Seattle and have been doing this work off and on for more than 30 years. The entire process is done by hand, hand-cut stencils and hand printing. My studio is located in the Alaska Indian Arts Building at Fort Seward in Haines.
