“I concentrate my artwork on my experiences and teachings from not only my Pueblo but also other native communities I’ve visited. The traditional ceremonies taking place in a modern world at a modern time has encouraged me to capture these moments then interpret them through visual perspective. I believe it’s imperative to embrace my heritage furthermore the place where I came from and how blessed I am to be both Dine and Taos Pueblo.”
