Artist Resume:

I attended the Cooper School of Art, in Cleveland, OH and received an Associates of Art in 1967. Drafted for Vietnam for 1968-1969, where I became a “Combat Artist” my last 5 months in Nam. I completed an Internship at the Smithsonian Institute, Washington, D.C. 1976. Also an internship at the NYS Museum 1979. Helped develop the Seneca-Iroquois National Museum where I worked 1975-1988. I now produce art in my studio on Main Street in Salamanca, NY.

Artist Statement:

For me, art is self-expression. Being a Seneca Indian artist, my art is almost always Seneca-Iroquois culture based. Because of our unique history, land (territory) rights, there is never-ending reason to produce art.
This in turn, contributes to our ability to survive as a people. I have done public art involving mosaic tile, stainless steel, stained glass, etc. We must interpret and express our history and our culture ourselves because we know it best.
