ARTIST STATEMENT

My practice is currently focused on printmaking, but does extend to other mediums as well. I strive to thank and honor my Karuk ancestors by reinterpreting traditional basketry designs and objects into contemporary works of art. As a resident of an urban city far from our ancestral territories on the Klamath River, creating art is the best way that I have found to maintain a personal connection with Karuk culture and language. The art that I make is intended to help fix the earth and build new Indigenous futures.
