     Moon Bear Pottery and Indian Arts is dedicated to the preservation and understanding of Native American art.  I have been creating art for over 60 years.  It has been my life long passion.  I feel Blessed that I have been able to spend my life persuing a career that fills me with joy as well as sharing this gift with others.

     I work in many different mediums:  Clay, painting, bronze, drawing, block prints, beading and dolls.  I use Native American themes and Nature throughout my art creations. I like to include "stories" within my art. These stories are woven deep within the pieces and can be "re-told" to better explain the finished work.  The stories also serve as a way to keep the "Oral Traditions" of storytelling alive.
