Acrylic Paintings & Photography
I photograph and paint because they are my greatest tools for sharing what the world looks like from my perspective. We are all different. We were born at different times in different places under different influences and different circumstances. Even if our experiences are similar, our interpretations are never exactly alike. Photography and painting allow me to communicate my impressions visually.
My paintings are based directly from photos I have taken (with a few exceptions). They are moments of my life captured on camera and recreated in acrylic paints on canvas. To some, the subjects of my paintings may not seem to possess great meaning, but to me they are what give meaning to my life.
I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to publicly display my paintings through galleries in Milwaukee, WI and Waukesha, WI, including Milwaukee City Hall, Waukesha City Hall and the Waukesha Public Library. I was also recently chosen to create a painting to represent my tribe (Akimel O'Odham) to be permanently displayed at GRICUA in Chandler, AZ. It is my goal to continue to use painting as a way of sharing my experiences, and maybe help expand people's understanding of the world around them.
