Biography


As an enrolled member of the Northern Arapaho Tribe and a great great  granddaughter of Bear Woman, Jackie is proud of her Native American heritage.  Legends and traditions of her native Wind River Reservation in Wyoming are often subjects for her unique works of art.

Residing in the heart of the Nebraska Sandhills near the small community of Seneca, her family encourages her to develop her talent and career at every opportunity.  As a former competitor, her husband Jim, a former PRCA saddle bronc rider and their children Chessney and son Jesse  competing in rodeo is also an important part of her life and is often inspiration.    Granddaughter Jymie is following in her mother’s and grandmother’s footsteps rodeoing and creating art.

Continuing to study, Jackie credits “the greats who have not only taught me technique but expression, dedication, and determination.  Some of these people have been Benjamin Harjo, JR, King Kuka, and Reynold Brown.
As Jackie’s work became recognized, awards and honors are accumulating; winning Best of Division for graphics at the prestigious Santa Fe Indian Market, the Aplan award, the Deiderich award, and the Bonnie Ericksen Award at the Red Cloud Indian Art Show.  The National Campaign Office for the Smithsonian’s Museum of the American Indian has commissioned work.  More of Jackie’s works can be found in private, corporate, and university collections throughout the United States, Europe, Japan, Australia, South Africa, and Great Britain.
