My drawings and paintings depict my experiences from my everyday life and visual show how I interpret the world around me with my strong Native American heritage and traditions. My pieces have an illustrative and narrative quality with them as I bridge the traditional Native American subjects with more modern contemporary styles. I want my artwork to reach out and connect with others; to let them know we may be different, but to know we are all human beings. This is what it looks like to be a Native in America and in Oklahoma today. Amber L. DuBoise-Shepherd is the current manager of Education and Outreach at the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art.
