I belong to a Traditional Chickamauga Medicine Society. At 50 I lost my husband, moved to a cabin in the Ozark Hills and began to fully understand how connected all things are. I make herbal medicines, have raised Mulefoot Hogs, grown corn and participated in the Sacred Ceremonies. I am Blue Holly Clan Mother.
The urge to create art has always been strong within me. I have written a Native American newspaper column for 14 years, authored a children's book, The Rag Picker's Christmas in which I did my own illustrations. Now painting has consumed my life. I don't think I"m particularly talented, but I am persistant.
Currently I am staying with my son in New Orleans but hope to go back home in the Spring.
