Ess Canales' Profile
I am an indigenous artist that is inspired by artforms that go back to the ancestors and by the friends and family that have kept the old ways alive in me. Every thing used in my paintings, from the bark to the natural dyes, was hand picked and gathered by me in nature. The Coppersmithed pieces and the Pounded Bark Paper were hand made by me using traditional methods. The designs and images are of my own inspiration. I am happy to share them all with you.
