Artist and mother of three sons and two daughters, Charlotte King lives on Akwesasne Mohawk Reservation.
Her work is greatly influenced by her culture and beliefs: A lot of our culture almost slipped away from my people. It was close to being educated out of us. Today that culture is growing and I want to influence others through my work to continue that growth. I want to show the beauty of my culture and my people. Native people have always had a spiritual connection with the natural environment and I want to let that come through my work.
