Roxanne Chinook
[email protected]
Ms. Chinook was born in 1954, and is a tribal member of The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs in Oregon, where she currently resides. She has a Fine Arts Degree from Boise State University. She inherited much of her artistic ability from her native roots: “My grandmother, my mother, my sister and my Uncle Mike were all gifted artists. When I graduated from college there weren’t many jobs available in a college town, especially art related. I was newly divorced with two young daughters to raise on my own, so I decided to move back to ‘the rez’ to be close to my family. I was driving to my brother’s house when an eagle flew directly over my car, and for the first time in my life I actually felt I was on the right path. I knew all my relatives were watching over me, and they wanted me to discover the beauty of my heritage and to pass that beauty on to others … so they and myself will always be remembered. That is why I paint, and for that I am proud.” See also her

Living Earth

Living Earth’s work tends to be deeply shamanic and cross-cultural in nature. The artist says, “I heal from severe traumas, abduction, abuse and exploitation. I deal with Tourette syndrome, seizures, partial vision loss, and dissociation. My written and visual work concerns dignity and peaceful coexistence. Respect for those in wheelchairs. Respect for those whose wheelchairs are in their brains or minds.”
