Julie SpallaMy blend of cultures (half Choctaw, half Czech) creates a unique voice as a contemporary Native American artist. I honor my Native culture while dipping into my Czech gene pool of performing artists and craftsman for a contemporary theme. Inspirations are many from the whispers of my ancestors guiding me through new journeys in several mediums.
Sometimes it feels like my art journey was intentional - it all developed and evolved over time. People always ask for my inspiration and it is difficult to put into words to explain a certain piece of work every time. Each person takes something a little different from their vantage point and that is the true “joy” of being a creative.
