Preston Singletary

Blue Rain Gallery

Singletary grew up hearing his culture’s traditional stories from his family (both of his great-grandparents were full-blooded Tlingit Indians) and many of those stories provide inspiration for his work. The formline design skills evident in so many of his pieces were acquired through study and collaboration with other prominent Northwest Coast artists such as Steve Brown and Joe David. Singletary credits mentor Joe David for helping him to take his work to a new level, one that is more spiritually based and culturally expressive of the different Northwest Coast styles. With Northwest Native icons, supernatural beings, transformation themes, animal spirits, shamanism and basketry designs among his many inspirations, Singletary has transformed Northwest Coast Native art and incited other Native artists to utilize the wonders of glass.
