Media:I shoot color and B&W Photography. I like to take pictures of the traditional side of my life, nature and the teachings I have learned.
During the 80’s and 90’s I worked as a photo-lab technician in a professional photo lab. You could say I was in the dark most of the time. I printed in multiple darkrooms turning negatives from professional photographers into weddings, proms, HS senior portraits, glossies and slides. Having worked as a lab tech for so long I wanted to shoot my own photographs, that is when I bought my Canon 35mm film camera. I was stubborn until the bitter end refusing only until this year to purchase my Canon 35mm digital camera. I enjoy being an amateur photographer taking pictures when the spirit moves me.
Some of my work has been shown in Seneca Nation Fall Festival, Seneca Iroquois Museum, Seneca Niagara Casino, C.G. Jung Center Gallery and St. Bonaventure’s Quick Center for the Arts and on the cover of NRAG 2013 Calendar.
The focus of my photography is my people, my culture and all things natural. I am a spiritual person and feel the spirits of all living things. I believe my photographs capture the spirituality of what I am trying to express.

Media: Drawing, painting, and photography
I’ve always watched my mother paint or draw and she’s taught me a lot of what I know. Besides that, I have taken art classes every year throughout school. When I was a senior in high school, I took a photography class and I was named the “Most Artistic” in the class of 2006. Since then, I sold a photograph to the Seneca Allegany Casino and have showed some art in the art shows held there.
Since I can remember, I’ve loved to draw and paint. Art class was my favorite subject in school. l couldn’t wait to get there and it never seemed to last long enough. When I was in 2nd grade, I was named the “Artist of the Month”. I felt so proud being recognized for doing something that I loved. Art also provided a way for me to forget the stress of outside ‘things’ and it let me ‘escape’ from the boring school day. When I draw or make something for someone, I love to see their faces when I present it to them because I know that I was able to make them happy with my talent. I watched my mother with her artwork and it has always been inspirational to know that I was given this talent through her. Art is something that will always be a bond for my mom and I. I can only hope that I pass this passion onto my son, expanding the family bond. To me, art signifies where you come from and what you’ve been through. Every piece of work that is created has a piece of the artist in it, no matter what the Media.
