Norman Jackson

Tlingit Nation
 
Norman Jackson is of the Tongass Tlingit Nation and was born in Ketchikan, Alaska in 1957. His lineage is from his mother who is of the Tongass Tlingit Hoots Hits Bear House of Southern Alaska. His father is Ka Gwan tan Tlingit of Klukwan, Alaska. Norman studied at the Kitanmaax School of Northwest Coast Indian Art in Hazelton and in metal engraving from the Totem Heritage Center in Ketchikan.

The magnificence reflected in Norman Jackson’s art is not unexpected. He is a recognized master artist in metal engraving by the Alaska State Council on the Arts Master Apprentice Grant and has received numerous honors for his excellence in wood carving.

He has apprenticed with master artist Dempsey Bob and Phil Janze and has been invited to pass on his knowledge by participating in several symposiums on professional carving. Norman’s work is held in major collections and his work was represented in a traveling exhibition called A Treasured Heritage by the Institute of Alaska Native Arts. “The first time I heard of Norman Jackson I was sitting in Phil Janze’s studio. He said that he felt he finally found someone as a young apprentice who could take jewelry forward, and I think Phil is very careful about how he says that. He’s seen a lot of artists come and go. And to see somebody who felt had the dedication to become a major jeweler which Norman is.”
