Tresham Gregg

Hello Folks,  Welcome to my personal artist website - a Gateway to several artistic realms.  Climb aboard the Galactic Spirit Canoe for a journey into the imagination of a hometown Alaskan Artist.  My name is Tresham Gregg, and I like to call myself a multi-medium mystic or fantasy artist.  I work in a number of mediums - woodcarving is my specialty, plus silk screen printing, painting, metal sculpture, talismanic jewelry, and puppet making and improv.  

I started off carving when I was a young teenager growing up in Fort Seward, Haines, Alaska as a member of a Boy Scout Troop learning Native art and culture, creating regalia, and performing masked dance theater shows of Native Legends - making the connection between the wild animals of the land, sea and sky and the spirit realm where animals take on human characteristics with a supernatural perspective.  This experience inherently became part of who I am as an artist.  

I like to reveal and animate natural phenomenon as spirit forces, like Northern Lights being Eagles or Ravens or Aurora Dancers.  I get there through impressionist treatments in various mediums - somewhat abstracting, somewhat stylized, somewhat fantasy treatments of form and flow.  Dance is the basic element in my work as it is a connection to a subconscious guiding hand.  My spiritual philosophy is a mixture of Northwest Coast Native spiritual thinking and Hindu Mythology.

I am also an Artistic Adventurer, having traveled to various places in the world to explore the arts of different cultures, and to do unique artistic involvements with local peoples. Recently I did a masked dance theater show in Panajachel, Guatemala with local Mayan young people called “Return of the Jaguar”.  

Currently, I am fascinated with the world of puppetry, making my own artistic puppets for showing and for sale.  Improving with hand puppets is a great connection to different perspectives, humor and storytelling.  

Everything is hand made by myself and my assistants mostly in my studios in Haines, Alaska.  If you have a specific item in mind, don’t hesitate to contact me.  I hope you can check out our puppet videos on youtube and subscribe to our channel.
