Commercial fishing for salmon, halibut, crab, and herring have take her throughout Alaska's waters. A self-taught artist, working primarily in clay, she teaches and creates art in her studio, camps, retreats, and schools. Brad arrived in Alaska as a teenager, found work with a big-game guide, and at 21 became a registered guide. He started his own guiding business and for over 20 years guided hunters and fishermen from all over the globe.
