Interests and Personality

BiographyI am a citizen of the Cherokee Nation and member of the Cherokee Artists Association. I live on a cattle ranch near my family. My interest is in Cherokee cultural arts. My passion is traditional pottery and I also make baskets and do beadwork. I have been doing traditional pottery since May 2005. I dig my own clay, build my pottery by hand coiling, and since I'm still learning, I double fire my pottery using a kiln first, then in an outdoor fire. Eventually I hope to do all wood firing when I gain experience.
InterestsTraditional Cherokee arts, culture, history, language. Also enjoy traveling, horseback riding, reading, and watching Sequoyah High School basketball (3 time state champs!)
HeroesMy heroes are the artists who have worked tirelessly to preserve and revive lost art forms and those who opened doors for the rest of us. The teachers, scholars, writers, historians, and warriors who have shared their passion and knowledge with us. To quote one of those heroes, "those who are smart enough to realize that battles are fought at many levels in many different ways."
