“As a little girl I was fascinated with Tlingit stories and in my head they always played out like fairy tales. I really wanted to bring a fairy tale feel to the pictures, as well as the images that both you and I could relate to. The jewelry is my way of telling the stories and one way I use to share my understanding of my culture.”

Goddard is Tlingit-Kaagwaantaan and was raised in Yakutat. She currently lives and works in Sitka, where she and her husband are raising their son and their two giant dogs. For more information, visit https://www.storeattheapk.com/
