  • Designed by Mark Preston

    Mark Preston (Tenna-Tsa-Teh) is of Tlingit and Irish ancestry and presently resides in the Yukon. He studied silver carving with well known master jeweler and carver Phil Janze (Gitskan Nation). Preston cites Mark Rothko and Jack Bush as influences in his more recent paintings and artworks which transcend the traditional Tlingit Native art form and move him closer into the abstract and contemporary realm.

  • The Chilkat in Indigenous Art

    Originating from the Tlingit people, but also found among gifts to the Haida, Kwakwaka’wakw and others, the Chilkat blanket and other textiles are synonymous with ceremony and prestige. Among the eyes, claws, and other features of human and animal-kind, the spiritual connection of life is ever present in Tlingit art.
