Carl Tabby speaks about his artwork. He began drawing early in life, before studying art at Santa Fe. After graduating he took a break from painting, and then began again, inspired by Nez Perce parfleche designs. His painting is intended to express the shared hardships that Native Americans have faced, while using vivid colors to signify the colorful lives they had. He discusses selling and exhibiting his work, his painting process, and plans for his future work. He describes that much of his style is related to the Plains peoples and his intention is to show universal Indian themes.
