Hawk and butterfly are animal allies of this artist in her self-portrait in the desert. She offers back to the desert spirits, the cactus fruits (tunas) in a Nez Perce basket, which symbolizes her family heritage. A sacred mountain rises in the backround.
I feel much pride and enjoyment in painting the history, legends and current cultural aspects of Latino and Native American peoples. I enjoy painting people and animals in a forest, jungle or desert setting. My philosophy is that artists have a great opportunity to promote social consciousness and bring humanity a message of beauty, harmony and peace. I speak out for a just society for all . . . not the ruling class.
