Alison O. Marks (née Bremner), is a Tlingit artist born and raised in Southeast Alaska. As a child of two cultures, native and non-native, the artist brings a unique perspective to her art. Through humor and a variety of mediums, Alison seeks to depict the experience of the modern native. Painting, woodcarving, and regalia are a few of the mediums the artist employs.

In addition to her contemporary practice, Alison is committed to the revitalization of Tlingit culture in her hometown of Yakutat, Alaska. She finds happiness in balancing art as social commentary and art for traditional and ceremonial use.

Alison has learned under master artists David R. Boxley and David A. Boxley. Her work can be found in numerous galleries in Vancouver B.C., Victoria B.C. and Seattle WA, as well as in the permanent collections of the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture, the Portland Art Museum, and the British Museum.
