Painting + Printmaking + Mixed Media


By exploring the modern world through the lens of a native artist, my work connects the past to the future. I use a variety of materials to tell my stories, never shying away from trying new mediums. In each work there is ornate, consistent Muskogean aesthetic. Life in motion continues to inspire me every day; in that, I try to always move forward with one eye on the past and one on the future. Through the practice of both modern and traditional arts of painting, digital art, shell carving, casting, sculpting and much more, my work continues the traditions of my ancestors.
