As a contemporary Cahuilla artist, I find much of my inspiration from our traditional culture. In these works, I am using the form of Cahuilla coiled basketry to pay homage to the Cahuilla basketry tradition while also expressing my understanding of Creation and Creativity.

In this work entitled "Basket Exploration: Creativity", I am using various materials (resin, plasti-dip, adhesive vinyl pinstriping) to express/explore my role as a Cahuilla artist. My heart, hand and tradition are the tools I bring into the studio.

In this work entitled "Basket Exploration: Creation", I was inspired by our creation beliefs and the birth of the Creator.
