Wichita, Jeweler
Artist's Statement
From http://www.fortunehuntinghorse.com (2016)

I am a member of the Wichita Tribe, located in Anadarko, OK.   Though the traditional art of the Wichita people includes beading and leatherwork., I find myself drawn to working with gold, silver and precious stone.   The many renowned Southwest artists inspire me, as well as my late brother-in-law, Navajo artist, Herbert Taylor.

My designs include traditional and contemporary motifs; my passion for the small creatures and birds of the Tucson desert, where I currently reside, shows up in my works.   Above all else, I take pride in producing each piece by hand, with the absolute best quality that I can imagine.
