Self-taught artist. Growing up, he was exposed to and influenced by world renowned artists Jackson Beardy, Norval Morrisseau, Cecil Youngfox, my uncle Leland Bell and my father, painter and writer Duke Redbird. As a teenager, Norval Morrisseau talked to me about colors and their meanings in relation to how they express Aboriginal language, history and culture. My uncle Leland Bell showed me techniques and shared traditional teachings and stories about animals and their meanings. My father, Duke Redbird, encouraged me to spread my art to share the beauty of Aboriginal culture. After these formative years, I continued to paint, learning more and finding my own voice and stories to share through my paintings, which are vibrant with color, story and meaning.
