Artist Statement: I have always stayed in the center of the conflict of what makes indigenous art Traditional or Contemporary. I like to mingle the two so that there is always a balance. Everything I’ve learned in life is a harmony, a song, and a ripple of blessings generated from the place I am from. Everything has a center, and through my art I wish to carry those waves outward and continue sharing ancient knowledge in every aesthetic way possible. It is evident that my use of traditional designs and motifs are there in place of words or letters, much like poetry. I hope to reach at least one mind, one reader of my art, that these ancient designs are here to stay and that it carries with it the glory of not just me but the entire nation that produced this individual. Creativity knows no bounds and so does my outlook on my artistic future.
