Northern Tutchone / Tlingit Nation
Born November 6, 1970, in Mayo, Yukon, of Northern Tutchone and Tlingit ancestry, Eugene belongs to the Crow Clan of Selkirk First Nation, located in Pelly Crossing, Yukon.
Eugene Alfred’s artworks often reference both sides of his heritage, in the form of Tlingit-style masks, bowls, rattles, and panels that are painted with traditional motifs and sculptures depicting Northern Tutchone stories. He works in all kinds of wood, including local birch, alder, yellow and red cedar, pine, and spruce.
Studying under such renowned artists as Dempsey Bob (Tlingit/Tahltan) and Ken Mowatt (Gitxsan), Eugene has established himself as a respected carver. His unique style and expertise have provided him with the opportunity to not only produce exquisite collectible artwork but also to become an instructor and pass on his artistry to the younger generations. Currently, Eugene works and resides in Pelly Crossing, Yukon.
