Enrolled Native American, Cherokee, self-taught, born in Sallisaw, Oklahoma, living in South Dakota over 34 years with his Lakota/Dakota wife Lanni Zephier, son and family. My creative abilities are a gift from the Creator. My works are a gift to humanity. Through creation of my art, I am able to feel the presence of a higher power expressing who I am and how I feel. I hope to connect with others through my art and to somehow make the world a better place. I feel a responsibility to represent my Native culture and people and ensure the arts continue for future generations.
