I am an indigenous artist from the Taos Pueblo. I create steel sculptures and cultural items such as painted elk and buffalo hide drums. I draw inspiration from the ancestral images of my native roots. My works are composed of traditional and contemporary themes with organic shapes and recognizable subjects. They depict traditional Native American motifs and characters fashioned in an original and balanced style.
I try to work with a sense of design that unites deep tradition with the contemporary. My stylized concepts and design motifs are integrated with form and color that result in a strong and vibrant balance that has been described as geometrical and organic at the same time.
