Andy is a member of the Skokomish (Twana) Nation. He was born in Shelton, Washington in 1955. He has lived in the Skokomish community all of his life. At the age of twelve, he became aware of his culture. It was then that he learned to make baskets and to gather basket materials with Skokomish elders Louisa Pulsifer and Emily Miller. After some experimentation in different mediums he became inspired to try carving after a tour he took at the Capital Museum in Olympia, Washington.
Lissa Hunter minature baskets in frame - I actually want to do something just like this with the Ikea Expedit in our guest room. Right now there's a mish mash of "stuff" in it. Instead I want to choose something consistent to collect for the Expedit squares. The "something" must be smaller than 12" x 12" x 12".
