“Over the years of painting I have experimented with different styles of art, the traditional Native images are a part of my cultural heritage that I portray as Spiritual Art. I have enjoyed painting these images since I was a young boy, over the years they have become a way of understanding my spirit and the essence of my First Nations history. I also have been painting abstract images, mostly of faces. This type of style has given myself true artistic freedom to paint whatever inspires me as an artist. I will continue to paint and push myself to explore the artistic spirit within.”
