I am a Native American from the Red Lake Indian Reservation in northern Minnesota and a First Peoples Fund artist. I believe that an artist’s role in the community is to bring awareness of the voices that are rarely heard, not to lead the charge of any cause, but to unleash the potential of others through art. I travel to art shows, pow wows, and other community events and empower others through Live Exhibition paintings. I am spiritually grounded, I walk my talk, and I lead by example. Using Creator given talents to serve others, I demonstrate the simplicity of life through paint.
