What many seem to appreciate in my artwork is the way multiple visual elements, derived from a variety of sources and inspirations, including my Native ancestry, wildlife and nature, are fused together into a multilayered, cohesive whole. To achieve that end result, I combine different artistic mediums, applying modern tools and techniques to the creative process.
I also try to give back to the community by helping out nonprofit organizations, providing, for example, an original piece of artwork or a few signed prints that could be used for raising funds. Among the causes I’ve supported so far are Ronald McDonald House, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Mothers Against Drunk Driving and the Canadian Cancer Society—all very worthy endeavours.
When you get right down to it, all that really matters in life, or at least in my life, is trying to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
