I am a South Eastern Woodlands artist with a main focus in both traditional Pre- and Post-Contact textiles and weaving. I have continued mentorship under several Cherokee National Treasurers, as well as other accomplished artists in textiles, baskets, weaving, and beadwork. I represented the Cherokee Nation as Junior Miss Cherokee, 2012-2013, Miss Cherokee, 2013-2014, Miss Oklahoma Indian Summer, 2015-2016, as well as multiple terms on the Cherokee Nation Tribal Youth Council. I was also a member of the award-winning Cherokee National Youth Choir, served as the Youth Advocate Awardee for the Seventh Generation Conference in 2016 and awarded the “Cherokee Nation Phoenix’s 7 Feathers Award for Culture in 2020. Over the last 11 years I have won numerous awards at venues across the United States, the presence of Cherokee culture is found in all of my work. I am a full time textiles artist, and reside in Checotah, OK, I.T.
