As a woman of esteemed Cherokee ancestry, I've wanted to express and create a more spiritual atmosphere to my art for a long time. One that specifically depicts my bloodline... the strength, courage and exemplary virtues of some of the women I've been fortunate enough to know in my life.
“The Cherokees did not separate spiritual and physical realms but regarded them as one, and they practiced their religion in a host of private daily observances as well as in public ceremonies.”
Here's a little sampling of the new series of illustrations I've been working on... there's lots more to come. And sorry about the grainy cell phone pictures, I promise to post everything in hi-res very soon. Get ready!
