by Myra Scholze of Nerka Designs, located in Kodiak, AK
Nerka Designs was born of one woman's love for wild spaces, thunderous surf, rough peaks, soft tundra and the colors and creatures that call these landscapes home. Myra Scholze was born and raised in Kodiak, Alaska where she now works as the Operations Manager of The Kodiak History Museum. When she’s not creating, she is often chasing her pint-sized dogs down beaches and up mountains, or curled up with a book. She enjoys ceramics, painting, drawing, sewing, writing, and teaching kid’s art classes. Myra describes herself as independent, resilient, and determined, and her goal for this year is to find peace in the present.
