I am a contemporary full-time sculptor and member of the Oneida Nation. My artistic goal is to share my mother’s Native American culture, stories, and love of nature symbolically through art, while enlightening and inspiring a large audience. Since childhood, making sculptures in a variety of materials has always given me joy and an inner peace.

In 1998, after being involved in Native American education at an administrative level for many years, I decided to dedicate my life to creating art. I continue to be an advocate of education and Native awareness through my sculptures and interactive storytelling in my art booth. My art is virtually maintenance free and timeless in both interior and exterior locations.

Dignity's Hope

It’s a mother’s sacred responsibility to nurture a child’s life. She renews and maintains cultural knowledge with love, dreaming of her child’s future.
