Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I am Lakota from South Dakota; I have recently moved to Arizona. I am a master moccasin maker and I am an accomplished bead worker. I make fully beaded moccasins, purses, hair barrettes, knife sheaths, bags and other sorts of Native American articles. I am also an accomplished seamstress...making pendleton wool coats, buckskin dresses, regular clothing items, quilts and more. I am a doll maker...I make Native AMerican Grandmother dolls. I sculpt their heads/faces, hands/arms and feet/legs from polymer clays then attach them to a soft sculpture body. Next I make everything they wear from the dress to the fully beaded moccasins on their feet. I use mohair for their hair. I am also a performer; I danced on stage at the RFDTV the Theature in Branson, MO for a years tour with Brule'. I performed with them for nearly 10 yrs.

I was raised on a Reservation in South Dakota. My parents had a working cattle ranch and I was my fathers right hand "man". I learned how to raise cattle and ride horses and became a professional barrel racer.

I have five children (all grown up) and eleven grandchildren.
