Artist Statement

"Ca'Win" Jimmy F. Calabaza
  Santo Domingo Pueblo

“Having the ability to create art is not man made, it is God given.  We are born into this earth with different abilities, no matter what the gift—if it is not nurtured, it will not blossom as it comes from deep within one’s spiritual being.  Being able to live in the past by creating now what our forefathers left and being able to live in the future when we are gone, by creating in the present.”
