Samuel L Paden

My work grows out of a desire to tell stories. I often focus on the figure as a way to explore conversations around sexuality and gender identity, as well my experiences being a two spirit Indigenous and Settler on Turtle Island. Composition, color, and intuition guide this exploration.

I am a two-spirit Citizen of Cherokee nation and settler. ᏥᏣᎳᎩ ᎠᎴ ᏲᏁᎦ.
