Michael Jimerson

Nation/Clan: Seneca/Turtle
Media: Drum drumsticks, snowshoe earrings, loom beading and beading

Artist Resume:

Graduated from Haskell with a degree in Welding. Took drafting at Denver University. My woodworking comes from watching and trying. When challenged to make the snowshoes smaller I did it and am very pleased with the results. My creations are inspired by my wife’s culture: Athabascan and I also make Seneca  art: Water drum and am researching snow snake and lacrosse ( earrings).

Artist Statement:

My art evolved over the years, I still draft and draw but mostly woodworking keeps me busy. I am retired from Municipality of Anchorage/ Port of Anchorage. We love to travel and see new things. However, my inspiration comes from nature in the Tetlin Junction area. My late parents: Lester and Hazel Jimerson were self taught artists from whom we were inspired to create beautiful art. All of my siblings are very artistic in one media or another. Art is a beautiful form of expression and should be shared.
