The inspiration for this original drawing came from an Edward Curtis photograph of an old Cheyenne chief looking out over the land. I decided to challenge myself and draw it backwards and add a bit of color to it. He looks as if he may be reminiscing about the past, viewing the present and looking toward the future, all at once. 


Native Americans, also known as American Indians, have lived and thrived on the North American landscape for thousands of years -- long before there was a United States. There are 500 federally recognized Tribes or Nations in the United States. Of those, Cheyenne, Apache, Navajo, Comanche, Sioux, and Blackfeet were some of the major Indian nations of the Old West in the 19th Century who lived in the Great Plains of North America, a vast area stretching from the Mississippi River to the west of the continent. The Southwest Tribes are located in Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado and include the Apache, Hopi, Navajo, Pueblo and Zuni.

For my art, I've focused on the Great Plains and Southwest Tribes because I am influenced by their history inparticularly because of where I live, in Utah. I feel inspired to portray their struggles, their pride, their reverence toward the land, and their wisdom through my art. I believe every person has a story and I try to express their story through every wrinkle I draw. I want my art to move you when you look at it. I want you to feel their joy, their pain and their pride as you explore every detail of the drawing.
