About the Artist

(Born 1950) Originally a resident of the isolated Alaskan Native village of Petersburg where she grew up, Edna Jackson is a papermaking artist whose sensitivity to local materials is immediately evident in her work. She gathers grasses, bark and plants to cook into pulp for her handmade papers. Abstracted Tlingit motifs serve as the "decorative" elements, as do more personal images of her husband and child with the cast paper elements. 

Her work was exhibited at the Seattle Art Museum during April 13 - May 28, 1989. The prior year she received a solo exhibition at the Southern Plains Indian Museum and Crafts Center in Anadarko, Oklahoma. In 1984 her work was featured at the Sacred Circle Gallery in Seattle.  

Jackson earned her BFA at Oregon State University (1980) and her MFA at the University of Washington (1983). She has taught papermaking both to high school and college students at the University of Alaska.

 Her native name is "Ka-Swoot".
