A life-long Alaskan, Greg Horner was introduced to carving at Alaska Indian Arts in 1974. Apprenticed to some of the finest Native and non-native artists in Alaska, he developed a foundation to further explore this art form in wood, metal and print media. Greg pursued formal art education in Seattle, graduating from Cornish Institute of Art in 1987. He was given a Tlingit name, “Skin Dei,” at a Potlatch memorial in honor of his mentor, Tlingit elder George Lewis. Horner currently works in Haines on private commissions and a series of glass sculptures with neon.
