Artist Statement : "As artists we learn what to paint through our elders, the teachers of our culture. We also learn through our other relatives and other races of people. Nature teaches us about art. As natural artists we are inspired by the beauty of people and nature. Old rock paintings help us to carry on the tradition to paint with a positive vision. Our talent to paint also helps us to look at the positive side of all living things, I am no expert in any art. Mother Earth is the best artist I know. She can paint every day and night - seasons." - Roy Thomas
