About the Author
I am certified Native American artisan of Cree First Nations heritage. I have been art-crafting and writing intensively for the past 40+ years. My family and pugs now reside within the stunning boundaries of Minnesota. Born in the northeastern woodlands of the U.S. and Canadian borders in the 1940's lives a territory where my spirit was exposed to a rich and varied natural environment. This precious experience continues to influence my artwork throughout my life. Living has been a circular journey. Traveling through sometimes stormy canvases and eventually flying into the open skies splashed across a human canvas. As with all living beings we will return back to the beginning at the end of the trail, a time for review, your heart light's reflection. My art works may be found in museum, corporate and private collections throughout the U.S., Canada, Germany, Great Britain, Italy and Japan. 2007 winner of the Eiteljorg Purchase Award 2008 First Place winner in Textiles at the Annual Eiteljorg Indian Market. 2009 & 2011 Best in Show at the In the Spirit Contemporary Art Exhibit.
