Welcome to apparentlypainted.com. I am studying the Cherokee Language, and it has infused itself into my paintings and jewelry. This is just a sampling of my work. Every one of my creations is unique and very often custom made. If there is something of mine that you've seen and it is not here, inquire. I am available for hire, so if you're interested in commissioning me, I welcome the opportunity. Estimates are free, so don't be afraid to ask.
All of my art is original and copyrighted. I ask that you do not copy, download or use any of these images without my consent.
May 28-July 4, 2013 my painting "America" will be displayed at City Hall in Paducah, KY (300 South 5th Street). Thank you to Mayor Gayle Kaler for inviting me to display my painting. Please drop by and visit the Flag Art Exhibit!
CC Gallery (430 North 6th Street, Paducah, KY) is graciously displaying several of my paintings and my breast plate necklaces. Kris Courtney's artwork, also displayed there, is a delight you must see!
I invite you to visit my cafepress storefront, where you can purchase merchandise with my Cherokee Language paintings on them. Just click here.

"If one could define a language as a living painting using words for color and the versatility of the brush to create both imagery and impressions, one would come close to describing Cherokee. It is a visual and poetic language, yet it is also a unique combination of precision, economy and attention to detail while exhibiting a fascinating flexibility based both on logic and imagination. To speak Cherokee is to speak in images that mirror both the reality and the spirit of the world for those of us lucky enough to participage in life as art."
