Through my early childhood I grew up watching John Wayne films and was completely immersed in battles between Cowboys and Indians with the white man always coming out on top.
As one grows older and the realises the injustices that they have endured as a people a new empathy for these complex and ancient people grows and these two paintings are my homage to them.
