Welcome to the forest

Kayla Wave. Jurgens - 

cháatl du tláa


    I am currently located in Huntingtown, MD 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".




In December of 2014 I was honored by being featured by Etsy, wanna see the interview?
