CAMRYN GROW­ING THUNDER (ASSINI­BOINE/SIOUX/KIOWA/CO­MANCHE)

Native American Art - - YOUTH -

Last year, Camryn Grow­ing Thunder won First Place, Best of Clas­si­fi­ca­tion and Best of Divi­sion at In­dian Mar­ket for a tra­di­tional piece she cre­ated—a toy size Dakota soft back cra­dle with den­tal­ium shells on red trade wool. Camryn, 15, learned bead­work at a young age but has dis­cov­ered a love for mixed me­dia. “For the past sev­eral years, I’ve been in­cor­po­rat­ing hu­mor into my art. I like to have as much fun as pos­si­ble when cre­at­ing some­thing, even if I’m just doo­dling in an art class. I value be­ing able to laugh and have fun, and I’m grate­ful I can do this with my art,” says Camryn.
