The beautiful art of Kit Thomas (St. Regis Mohawk).
From the Kit Thomas Tubmblr page http://kitthomasart.tumblr.com/
“I am not just a native artist, I am an artist. A modern female warrior, a hustler & an
entrepreneur. I am original, abstract, street, undefined. I got flare. I paint, draw and paint custom shoes.”
From her homepage http://kitthomasart.webs.com/
“I reside in Roanoke, VA. I just moved from Charlotte, NC where I’ve lived for 8 years. I was born upstate NY along the Canadian border and am proud to say I am Iroquois of the St. Regis Mohawk tribe. As a kid, I had a passion for graphic design and especially for street art. It started with the graffiti I saw on the streets of NYC. We frequently visited while I lived in north Jersey from ages 8-10. I grew up on and off the reservation boundaries but always had my sketchbooks for documentary and therapeutic purposes.
I began drawing & cartooning as a kid and then began exploring more of my talent in high school. I dabbled in oil, acrylic, oil pastel, pencil, ink and charcoal mediums, even sketched comic books and native american tattoo designs. I graduated from Massena Central High School with a major in art.”
