Painting is a way of reflecting on my culture: past, present and future. Each painting incorporates an abstract style or geometric beadwork, quillwork forms used to tell stories, dreams, visions and other unexplainable events. As I paint, I remember this ideology and continue to tell the stories of many lives through juxtaposed shapes, size, structure, scale, composition and colors. The large non-figurative expanses of color and form offer the viewer an opportunity to explore the depth of stimulating cultural and traditional imaginary.
