Biography

I work as both an artist and an artisan, as I operate under the reality that process is as much the art as the form/message. I draw my creative inspiration from my experiences of my youth in the 1950-60’s growing up on the Lakota and Oglala Sioux reservations in the Dakotas, from my travels and adventures, from reading history, and from my faith and family.

Having the opportunity to create representations of our cultures heroes is an honor and a privilege.
