Contemporary imagery, brash colors and spiritual iconography make up the essence of Raven’s strong and vibrant acrylic paintings. History and culture are not lost here. The viewer often finds them-self lost within the framework of multiple scenes, random graphic juxtapositions working alongside the venerated cultural and historical collective narrative.
Raven studied commercial art and graphic design at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, NM. This strong background in the graphic arts lends itself well to the vibrant, energetic and thematic iconographic projections often displayed in the forms of windows and sections, individual perspectives, morphed into a larger collateral universe. Raven’s experience includes commercial artist, designer, illustrator, freelance artist and photographer.These days Raven can be found performing around the Santa Fe areas as a blues musician and taking on the task on writing a book. Raven lives and works in Santa Fe, NM.
