Native American (Lakota Sioux), b.1987, South Dakota, based in New York City, New York.


ARTIST STATEMENT:

I grew up in the open plains of South Dakota, and now I’m surrounded by the vertical landscape of New York City. Although, my environment has changed, the subject of my paintings remain deeply rooted in the multi-toned layers of the sacred Lakota culture. I aim to tell fresh stories of the contemporary Native and contribute to the preservation of Lakota culture and language through abstracting the symbolism, stories, and memories.
