“Native American Journey Series”
My art portrays the energy and purity of life as it is in the American Southwest.
I am intrigued by the Native Americans and strive to show a sense of honor, compassion and respect.
When I am sketching at their Powwows, I reflect on where they’ve been, where they’re going and the essence of their spirit, passion and heart. I love to portray details that reach into their lives, the very essence of their spirit being.
The hues and tints in my work are inspired by the stunning colors of the Arizona sunsets and how
they interact with the day’s light as well as by the patterns of nature’s play with pigment and shadows.
In my work, I seek to capture a moment in my mind where I feel I have reached an understanding
of the subject’s actions and thoughts, and then transfer the essence of that moment on to paper.
