I am a self taught artist - I have been doing art since childhood.

Curator, Artist. Hopi-Tewa.

Duane draws artistic inspiration from his traditional Hopi culture and his everyday life. His experiences, including overcoming past struggles with alcohol addiction, shape who he is as an artist, father, exhibit curator, motivational speaker, and Mental Health Technician at Flagstaff Medical Center. His artwork has been showcased nationally, most recently at the Museum of Northern Arizona and the Center of Southwest Studies where he served as co-curator for the PIVOT Exhibit
