Tule, 2020.
Jacky Calanchini (Nisenan)
Acrylic and marker.

I spend a lot of time learning about my California Indian heritage, so much of my inspiration comes from my interaction with my community and the state of our landscape during each season. After learning something new or revisiting something special I like to create a picture of some sort to capture, study, or appreciate it. Securing knowledge of our forbearers takes lots of works but it also enriches my life with many beautiful experiences. I would like to capture some of those experiences in my work and hopefully, that will aid in keeping the knowledge alive for my children.
