I am a member of the Wichita Tribe, located in Anadarko, OK. The traditional art of the Wichita people includes beading and leather work, however I find myself drawn to working with gold, silver and precious stone. I am inspired by the many renowned Southwest artists as well as my late brother-in-law, Navajo artist, Herbert Taylor.
My designs include traditional and contemporary designs and my passion for the small creatures and birds of the Tucson desert, where I currently reside. I take pride in producing each piece by hand with the best quality in mind.
