I am a full blooded Dakota Sioux from the Santee Sioux Nation located in Northeastern Nebraska currently residing in Broard County. Art has always been a big part of me. When I create I am free. I am at peace with the Universe. My artistic passions in life are painting, photography and making Dreamcatchers. My paintings reflect my strong Native American roots and my love for animals and nature. I have always been an artsy craftsy girl. And my love for making dreamcatchers started when I was very young
