Collections include Tweed Museum, Denver Art Museum, Museum of Contemporary Native Arts, Autry Museum and Crocker Art Museum.

“My fine art practice is informed by a concern for the environment, displacement, exile and the return home from dislocation and separation. I seek the unbroken relationship between modern culture and ancient lands which uses tradition and story to make sense of the enduring quest to understand our changing experience of home.”
