About the artist
KAYLA WAVE. JURGENS - CHÁATL DU TLÁA ( MOTHER OF HALIBUT )
I am currently located in Poulsbo, Washington with my husband, four children, and our pack of pups. My work is inspired by my upbringing in the forests of the Pacific Northwest. From a young age I remember the moss between my toes, catching salamanders, collecting foliage, skipping around streams, and chasing frogs. I am a member of the Tlingit tribe of southeast Alaska and my Tlingit name is Cháatl du tláa, meaning "Mother of the Halibut".
