"My next painting will come from a short walk outside my front door. Inspiration for me is everywhere. I look to the sky; I look across the water, deep and beyond the horizon. These are the places of inspiration. This piece of sky, this moment in time, is mine to paint."
"I grew up on the White Earth Reservation in Minnesota. Times were tough, but our lives were full of music and art. I knew I wanted to be an artist, but buying paint, brushes and canvas were not within reason. So, I remember mixing a combination of dirt and sand with water to make my paint. I had to leave the color to the imagination."
"I use many different mediums, such as oils, acrylics, pastels, inks, wax, stone and other metals to get me where i'm going. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual style."
"My wife and I live in the woods and near many beautiful lakes. We live in one of the most peaceful and beautiful places in northwestern Minnesota. Nature inspires me, so a walk in the woods will always provide me all I need for my next piece of artwork."
