We are very pleased to once again have Sandra Smith-Poling as our Featured Artist for December, 2016. Sandra is a local Port Townsend artist and former Air Force physician. 

Every summer Sandra and her husband, Mitch, travel to Alaska where Mitch teaches baidarka/angyak building and Sandra is the camp doctor and teaches baidarka models and native doll making at the Nuuciq Spirit Camp in Chugach, Alaska.

Below is a sampling of Sandra’s Alaska spirit camp depictions.
