About the Artist
Creating strong, loving pieces of art is Elk Woman's passion. She started her training during childhood with nature as her teacher and the inspiration for her art. While she is best known for her sculpture, often incorporating recycled materials, she also creates unique jewelry and paintings. All of her work combines artistic flair with technical skill to create work that is full of love and spiritual feeling. About her use of recylced materials, she says, "I want to inspire people to be proactive in taking care of the sacred Mother Earth."
