Artist Statement

“I see my art as a way to preserve my traditional and cultural identity; art is the way to express my people’s history. Each piece tells a story and is a way to teach the younger generations our history, like the masters taught me. I see myself as a bridge to better understanding, compassion and empathy between natives and non-natives; I use my artwork as the tool to reach this goal.”
