I am Diné, from Mariano Lake, NM. I am born into the Edgewater People, for the Deer Spring Band. I state this because being Diné is part of who I am. I am proud of this, it is one of the many influences in my work.
I am a 1995 graduate of the Institute of American Indian Arts. I have been blessed with many amazing teachers and mentors on this journey.
I have been creating art for as long as I can remember. My work is influence by many things. I am of course influenced by my Diné traditions and upbringing. The traditional ceremonies I am apart of influence me. I am however more than Diné. I am a man that lives and works in two worlds, the Diné world and the modern world I encounter every day.
