    the U S and much of Central and South America My artwork bridges the influence and experience of places I ve explored to my ancestral ties as an indigenous woman navigating a contemporary Western World I am apart of an interpretive generation and I paint the vibrancy beauty and psychological depth I experience from two worlds I travel within My goal as an artist is to develop a dialogue with the viewer about the continual Native American Holocaust and how the subsequent loss of cultural identity has directly affected my experience as a contemporary indigenous woman My artistic practice tackles these cultural and societal issues by re interpreting history allowing myself to transcend historical trauma so to continue my cultural and spiritual healing I am doing this through utilizing language based imagery such as re presenting family and tribal documents as well as re appropriating the romanticized Native American portrayal Through reclaiming the images and words that have been used to conquer and stereotype my people I am participating in the act of de colonization My artistic expression facilitates my personal journey of de colonization an essential process for true activism in the 21 st century I am reclaiming my native identity by exploring the idea of recovery Recovery of memory recovery of language recovery from post colonial trauma to emerge more connected aware and more self expressed My focus rather than about sorrow and pain will honor my family s story as a way to transcend and bridge ancestral memory to the people My goal is to explore a beautiful contemporary indigenous perspective grounded in subconscious memory informed by history re imagined for today a celebration of the spirit of life there s a reason for my generation there s a reason we are who we are that reason
