About my work: Portraiture in context of sculpture and form - referencing the masterpieces from both European Classical and Neoclassical time periods. From a cultural mirror of taking inspiration from Gods and Goddess of the ancient world, my sculpture's subject is focused on a contemporary Chickasaw Elder. Using portraiture as a means of Cultural Preservation but equally re-appropriating classic sensibilities of art history to a Native Cultural narrative.
