Born and raised in Southeast Alaska, Bremner is believed to be the first Tlingit woman to carve and raise a totem pole. Painting, woodcarving, regalia and digital collage are a few of the mediums the artist employs. In addition to her contemporary art practice, Bremner is committed to the revitalisation of the Tlingit language and creating works for traditional and ceremonial use.
“Culture is not stagnant. Through contact and the technological revolution Tlingit culture is constantly adapting, observing, and searching for its place in the world.” Alison Bremner
