I have a great appreciation for Native American art and culture. I am inspired by the beauty and artistry, the peaceful way they lived, and their connection to mother earth. Everyday I strive to live my life in a way that exemplifies that ideal. I have spent a lifetime studying and learning about the Native American culture, admiring the use of art in their everyday lives, and the beauty and serenity it embraces. I taught myself how to bead several years ago, but never really did anything with it. Al and I met in 2006 and we started going to mountain man rendezvous. This reignited my passion for beadwork and leather work. I made myself a buckskin dress, bags, leggings the whole outfit. When we got married, we wanted to wear our mountain man clothes and I made a white buckskin wedding dress and moccasins.
After years of sculpting wood, the natural progression was to draw on that knowledge and apply it to bronze work. The last few years I have concentrated more fully on sculpture, and have completed several pieces. I draw inspiration from nature, the people of the past, and my own life in the west.
The ability to express yourself through art is a gift, and should be shared with others. As an artist, I believe art should be not only visually pleasing, but should touch on the viewers emotions.
