Short description of your art.

I do all types of styles of my own. Mainly focused on portraying my culture and identity as an indigenous person. My art can also be expressive meaning I try to show or write down my own thoughts, desires and beliefs in the most respectable way I can. My music is more focused on encouragement and motivation for chasing dreams and goals as well as creating a foundation of support for any and all who go through tough times.

Where did you learn your art?

I learned to paint on my own. As for writing, that creativity came naturally and my music side is a result of being raised in a family of musicians and singers that were involved in the church.

Where do you find inspiration for your work?

My inspiration comes from the land and people who surround me as well as my own experiences.

Have you received any formal training?

No I haven’t

What other art forms do you practice?

Currently picking up carving and modern graffiti style art.

Have you ever received any awards or special recognition?

I have received a recognition award here in my home town for young Artist.

Do you sell your work? If so, how?

I’ve only ever sold my art to local businesses and individuals.

Has your art work ever been mentioned in any media?

No it hasn’t. Not to my knowledge.

Please provide any information on your buyers.
