“I tell stories about my childhood, family, trauma, healing, and the appealing mundane. The dots and shapes are my words; the stories are in their rhythm. My work is often beautiful, masking ugly histories. I keep Indigenous textiles, beads, pottery, and landscapes in my periphery when I make art. My work is the exploration of existence, time, and space, woven from cultural memory and epiphany,” says Jordan Ann Craig, a Northern Cheyenne artist based in Pojoaque Valley, New Mexico. As a painter and printmaker, she creates intricate patterns, abstract geometries, and unique artist books.
