The Healing Gift of the Jingle Dance

It is a gift from the Creator to dance the Jingle Dance. I am deeply grateful to all those who have taken me up on their wings to share their traditional knowledge and artistry, strength, guidance, love, and blessings as I created with prayer my traditional Jingle dresses.

 

Process Jingle Dress 2019 - Cross-cultural design is inspired by my traditional Ukrainian folk design. Paintings titled Process and Click were printed onto textile for regalia.
