Christopher Sweet (Ho-Chunk/Ojibwe) from south central Wisconsin, studied at the Institute of American Indian Arts, Santa Fe, N.M.
His work is intertwined with modern art and native culture. His work varies from still life to abstract, but his main focus is the, incorporating of unity and healing.
“Art was a gift given, but not pursued. Experiencing the pain of losing two daughters put me in a bad place, but a woman I now proudly call my wife came in to my life, helped heal me and reunite me with my gift of art. Now I focus all my creative energies toward unity and healing."
Christopher and his wife Chrissy currently reside in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

My name is James “Bud” Day and I am from the Bois Forte band of Ojibwe in Northern Minnesota. I currently make my home in Michigan with my wife Alexa and son Aydrian. Both who are also talented artists, it give me so much pride to have a little family of artist who love to create as much as I do. I enjoy all aspects of art and only recently got involved in the Art Market World. Seeing all of the beautiful pieces from artist of many backgrounds and art forms invigorates my creativity and inspires me to want to create even more and more. I love to bead, draw and paint. I give the most praise to my mother and my wife for always encouraging and inspiring me to make and try new things. Miigwetch for the honor of being chosen as Artist of the month!
Christopher and Lydia Chavez are two collaborative artists who create and design Wampum beads and Wampum jewelry using Quahog shells from Long Island, NY. They are married and currently live in Denver, Colorado. Mostly they show their works together but do show separately as well on occasion. Their process involves painstakingly handcrafting each shell to a finished state by use of rotary tools, saws, drills and grinding wheels. Maintaining the highest level of artistry and quality is top priority for all the pieces they create. Give their work a look online at their website.
