Artist Statement

“ Being an artist who divides his time equally between painting, carving and designing, I have been gifted the opportunity to express myself through several mediums, which I approach with humour, optimism and a new found responsibility. In the world we live in, there is much to be cynical about, but I have found an outlet from which I gather much joy and light, and am so fortunate to be able to pass that joy on. As an Indigenous man from the Little Red River Cree Nation, I gather much inspiration from the stories passed on by elders within my community, stories that have evolved and changed, some documented, some not, but the essence of these stories are passed on through the years. As a contemporary Indigenous artist, respectful of my indigenous roots, I am in pursuit of becoming my true authentic self (in this ever evolving culture). I am aware that much of my craft comes from an innate ability that I have been born with, and believe this to be a blessing and a responsibility, both of which I take very seriously. I seek inspiration from the past as I create a bold and colourful future.”
