Art

 I paint, bead, weave dream catchers, sew creations, take photos, and do crafts of all sorts with many materials. I enjoy blending 2 or more forms together into a sculpture or a story board/panel. Often, I integrate my poetry and art into one artistic piece.

•A Tricksters Domain Series

is a series of narrative panels of mixed media depicting my poem , Lost on Some Dirt Road. There are seven 14 by 22 inch story panels of fabric, words, feathers, beads, and bone. Each panel illustrates a stanza or a part of a stanza that is in writing upon the piece. From the moment the car leaves the rez road and drives under the canopy of song they enter a surreal domain of hidden camps and charging buffalo. The observer is whisped along from panel to panel until the carload escapes the tricksters domain. Here are the first three:

These photos are excellent. The zoom really works.            Pictures Jesse Lee
