The Girl with the Cardinal
22" x 28"
uly 2005 took me to the home of the Cherokees in North Carolina. This was my first experience on a Native American reservation.
I immediately realized that my romantic notions regarding Native Americans were best buried.
The regal photographic portraits of these people from the turn of the last century have kept our consciousness in the past. So my idea was born: to continue Native American portraiture with the young generation as my subjects.


Stars and Stripes
14" x 14"
ative American youth
at the Pow Wow in Cherokee July 2005,
The barbwire is a symbol of the cage that is the Native American reservation.
The barbs represent the stars, and the wires, the stripes.
