I grew up in the 4-Corners area of the Navajo Nation, around Shiprock and Farmington, New Mexico. I graduated High School from the Navajo Preparatory School in 1995 then studied 2-D Arts and Photography at the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) in Santa Fe. I graduated IAIA in the summer of 2000. Much of my artistic endeavors stem from my love of the craft itself. In terms of photography, I fell in love with grainy film and rough edges while maintaining crisp and cleverly captured moments in a solid frame. My other primary practice is sequential and 2-D art. I employ high-contrast and thick lines to convey bold imagery matched with bright and vivid colors. Artwork that can be used to not only express, but captivate and manipulate thought and action has always been my goal as an artist.
