Artist Patrick Lind

...
Artist Patrick Lind SITKA, ALASKA (2011-07-01) For the past two weeks, visiting Aleut/Alutiiq cultural artist and musician, Patrick Lind, taught classes at the Sitka Fine Arts Camp, and demonstrated his art in the gallery of the Sheldon Jackson Museum. He's been a teacher for 16 years and scours museum archives to learn more about ancient techniques. Lind came from Homer to share his expertise in hopes of passing a little cultural history along to the younger generation.
Lind taught wood carving and painting to the students at the Fine Arts Camp but uses several different mediums for his own artwork. He's originally from Chignik, located 250 miles west of Kodiak Island. He was born and raised commercial fishing and then joined the Army National Guard before studying Aleut/Alutiiq culture and art. Lind's culture and environment steer his inspiration as an artist.
Lind says one of the perks of his profession is being his own boss but says that has a downside when you're doing what you love. He usually sleeps around 4 hours a night...or less when he's working under a deadline.
Lind left Sitka last week but says he enjoyed his time in Sitka teaching at the Fine Arts Camp and demonstrating at the Sheldon Jackson Museum and hopes to return next year.
