I create figurative drawings and paintings that explore the evolving Native identity from pre-reservation period to the present day, from ancestral homelands to city life. The female form is my main subject, and I began my career with drawings on antique paper by sharing parenting, family, and community stories. I transitioned from Prismacolor pencils into oil paintings portraying Indigenous women in modern settings celebrating resistance and survival. The subjects I paint reflect the various avenues Native women today take to remain connected to their cultures. I am documenting our moments for future generations.
