Jean Taylor

Jean Taylor is from the Dakhl awedi Clan of the Teslin Tlingit Nation. She says she realizes how inspired and encouraged she has been by the creativity that was all around her during childhood. “I have a picture of my great-grandfather making snowshoes,” says Jean. “I am certain that he didn’t think of himself as an artist, nor did most of my relatives. They were just making functional things that we needed to get by in the northern environment. Now I appreciate the great skill, love and artistry that were put into everything they made.”
