Artist Statement

The subject matter of my works have stemmed from the fascination of the aesthetics and meanings within ancient and contemporary design. Through color, shape, and representation, I merge together my life and Indigenous influences to reflect our evolving state. In essence, art making is fun and creating new art forms that symbolize our time, just as all of our ancestors always have, is an exciting thing to add to history
