"It was always important to me to be recognized as a Native person. It was also importatnt to be understood as a New York artist, one who was working in the mainstream." Kay WalkingStick, 2014
Kay WalkingStick, a citizen of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma and one of the world's most celebrated artists of Native American Ancestry, is noted for her distinctive approach to painting. Emerging from the cauldron of the 1960's and 1970's New York art world and poised between late modernism and postmodernism, WalkingStick seeks spiritual truth through painting and reflection.
