Board of Directors

Anne Margaret Shuham

I was born and raised in Ketchikan, leaving the community several times before returning in the early 1990’s. I have a B.A in Social Welfare from Seattle University 1984, a M.A. in Bioethics & Health Policy from Loyola University Chicago 2006 and a Doctorate in Bioethics 2014. While I typically do not describe myself as an artist, I am a working metal-smith, weaver and spinner. I love spending time with metal hammers and torches, transforming sterling, copper and gold from wire and sheet into worn objects of adornment.

My interest in serving on the Board of Directors of the Arts Council resides in helping promote and encourage all forms of artistic expression, recognizing this community has many artists from all mediums not yet discovered. I also feel strongly that as a community we capitalize on our best assets, our youth!
