Artist Statement:
Born in 1949 to a Full Blooded Eastern(Carolina) Cherokee Father and a Swiss/German Mother, I was a writer of verse first. After an accident in 1987, which ended my Navy career and left me with hands that didn't work, I sought out a way to make my hands work.

Why Did You Become An Artist To hopefully educate people in the ways Native Peoples view the world, both physical and spiritual.
 
Your Personal Biography I am but one of many spirits, who have chosen to wander this world, at this time in history. I claim no past, special roots, or family. No given established creed or belief system. I only know, for sure, that I have the gifts of writing and painting, of which I only give credit to my Creator. Of all, that is mine to give, I only hope that you might derive enjoyment.
'Know Native American images
and the stories behind those images'

I have drawn my Native American themes mainly from the tribes and Pueblo culture of my native state of New Mexico and the surrounding Southwestern states. Most people are fascinated and also fearful of the images they see in Native American Art. All fear comes from a lack of knowledge. Put your fears to rest by learning the wonderful and beautiful tradition of the People who live 'with the land'. Stroll through my 'HOME GALLERY' and be filled with the richness of America's Native Peoples.
