Eugene Alfred is a artist/carver of Northern Tutchone and Tlingit ancestry, and belongs to the Crow Clan of Selkirk First Nation, located in Pelly Crossing, Yukon.
Studying under such renowned artists as Dempsey Bob (Tlingit/Tahltan) and Ken Mowatt (Gitksan), Eugene has established himself as a respected carver. His unique style and expertise has provided him with the opportunity to not only produce exquisite collectable artwork, but also to become an instructor and pass on his artistry to the younger generation.
Working in the Tlingit style and using Northen Tutchone stories carved in realistic imagery, Eugene carves birch, alder, and cedars, which he carefully harvests and cures. Using an array of over two hundred hand tools, he carves masks, bowls, rattles, and sculpture panels. He believes that his art defines him and the respect he has for the land.
Some of Eugene Alfred’s works may be found at Spirit Wrestler Gallery and Inuit Gallery.
