    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.

    Valued for their beauty and charm, the Hummingbird is often said to bring good luck to those who spot them. Among Haida people of the Eagle clan, Hummingbird is a family crest, but it is not traditionally a major motif in the art. It's popularity today indicates that it has become a very important symbol of love and beauty.
