I am inspired by the numerous art forms and narratives that are a part of my Chickasaw and Ponca heritage. To establish visual depth in my acrylic paintings, I go through the process of underpainting to create layered effects. Through that process, it directs me and I automatically feel that connectedness. Our Chickasaw southeastern motifs and tribal perspectives are a reflection of the pride I feel as a 21st century Indigenous man making his mark.
