About + Portfolio
Yá’át’ééh and hello, my name is Lyncia. I live near Dook’o’oosłííd, a mountain sacred to countless tribes across the southwest regions of the U.S.. The area in which I live, provides histories, languages, and paradigms that largely inform much of my work and subject matter.
I am a self-taught artist with an MFA in Creative Writing.
As an artist and illustrator (and water-clan being) the use of traditional watercolors has been my go-to. As of late, I’ve been leaning into the digital arts, creating gifs, stickers, and motion graphics.
To the left and right are projects I’ve worked on. Enjoy!

Speak for the Peaks is an art initiative calling for submissions of art that address Snowbowl’s ongoing destruction of a sacred mountain known as the San Francisco Peaks.
