Artist Statement

My drawings and paintings depict the stories that I heard as a child. My mother and father told Navajo, Sauk & Fox, and Prairie Band Potawatomi legends to my brother and me. I use oil paint, pen & ink, markers, and watercolor to show the complicated stories in a visual way. I illustrate these larger than life beings interacting with people in contemporary everyday life. I use different styles with different mediums so I can bridge the traditional Native American subjects with more modern contemporary styles. I work with old and new in various ways to create a bridge for viewers to see these stories differently.
