Artist Statement:

As an artist, I’ve always loved to draw. Drawing provided an escape from my every day life. Iroquois, as well as other Indian tribes’ beliefs, revolved around that all matter is living. For Mother Earth to survive, man must respect and live in harmony with nature. It is nature that inspires me to be the artist that I am.
