I am of European descent, but have a great love for for Native American craft as well as smith craft. Creation is one of the greatest gifts we have and I take pride sharing it with you.
Most of the Native American craft I learned while I lived in Phoenix, AZ. While living there I was fortunate enough to make friends and later learn Native craft from Lone Eagle who is one quarter Comanche originally from Texas. As we became friends I learned my leather craft, beading and pipe making from him. His work surpasses mine, but I feel I still do him proud.
My smith skills start with my cousin who has always been an important friend to me. He has much more patience on the forge then I do, but through diligence and practice I believe I do him proud. Thank you Dale!
While in Phoenix I learned the basics of glass work from a man, Dave Draver. From there I was able to expand and use my creative abilities to produce many glass sculptures.
My wood working ability has come naturally to me over all. I did learn bits and pieces over the years from my father and many other acquaintances.
