Chilkat Pattern Boards
Chilkat Pattern boards were traditionally painted as a template for weavers to use to guide their design as they wove. This was usually done on a large plank of wood or multiple planks of wood. This piece is a study in Chilkat design style, a subcategory of Formline design which acknowledges the constraints of the weaving artform.
Painting my own skateboard was where Trickster Company began. I simply created a painting on my own personal board to represent my heritage in my day to day life. I continue today designing various daily products as well as fine art products.
