From the artist: My paintings on Native American subjects are from a group of paintings I call The Redemption Series.
I was going into college when I was told about the Trail of Tears. I felt betrayed… By my own education, or lack thereof.
It was wrong that I had not been told. This gave birth to the Redemption Series.
The Redemption Series grew to include paintings calling attention to civil rights, including my painting about the Underground Railroad.
