“Creator makes the Gourd People and I get to dress them in regalia.”....Nadiya Littlewarrior, Potawatomi
I am dedicated to respecting that what I am feeling in my heart ❤️ and what I am thinking in my mind while I listen to and work with the Gourd People goes into their Being and regalia. My Mother was an artist, my grandfather was an artist, my great uncle was a silversmith and 3 of my great aunts were Rockettes. My grandparents taught me about artistic energy and challenged me to find my own medium. An Art medium different than theirs, and once introduced to the Gourd People I felt comfortable in my own skin, finally! I am grateful every day that my art is my work.
