I won Best of Show at the Cushing Native Art Fest in Oklahoma!  Had a good few hours seeing everyone for the Cushing Native Art Fest and Pow Wow! Thank you the Native Fest-Cushing, OK for hosting this event and I’m really happy I won Best of Show! One of my Sac and Fox relatives Phillip Manatowa won 2nd in his category. Also thank you Molly Payne and Linda Haven Andre for giving out awards and getting the art show together. It was good to see everyone! And I also want to the film crew for interview me about myself and my artwork and as well as the Native Fest. Very blessed day. It’s a hot one so be sure to drink lots of water! I also ran into my niece Rosemary! Congrats to all the artist that won and all the artwork was amazing. 😇  #cushingok #cushingoklahoma #nativefest2019 #nativeamerican #nativeart #navajo #sacandfox #potawatomi

So I haven’t mentioned this yet but I will be at the Cherokee Art Market in October! This will be my first year going and I am looking forward to it. This market will be October 12th and 13th at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in the Tulsa, OK area. I trust to have new small pieces finished by that time, so I definitely come and see me! Also the Hard Rock is pretty neat Casino and Hotel with plenty of entertainment and food. Once I get my booth number I will update!  #cherokeeartmarket #cherokeeartmarker2019 #hardrockcasinotulsa #hardrockcasino #navajo #sacandfox #potawatomi
I will be showing art at the Cushing, Oklahoma Native Fest art show & pow wow September 7th! The art Reception is 11am-12pm, and will be on display from 12pm-6pm while they have the Pow-Wow. I will be there from 10am-1pm to talk about my pieces for those interested. I normally get a booth but because of a event at the museum, the Mabee-Gerrer of Art I won’t be able to. But I will leave my work up there to display until 6pm.  I’m looking forward to it! Check out their event on Facebook or their website at Native-Fest!  #cushingok #cushingoklahoma #nativefest #nativeamerican #nativeart #navajo #sacandfox #prairiebandpotawatomi
Goodbye Santa Fe... Until next time! ❤️
Santa Fe Indian Market is over and it was great! I had a great time and it was much better than last year. I really enjoy my new location better and the foot traffic was great. I sold small originals and plenty of handmade cards.  It sure was tiring and my feet hurt but I really enjoyed visiting with people and to talk to them about my Native art.  Thank you to my family for coming and helping me watch the booth, sell, and loading and unloading the booth. Thanks to my mom for making us breakfast each morning.  When I go to the market it becomes a family event!  Also it was great to see all the other artists and see friends from all around. Congrats to those that won ribbons and congrats to those that sold well at the market! I really enjoyed this year, and I trust I will be here next year.  Until next time Santa Fe, my favorite place in the world!  Your Local Native Oklahoma Artist!  Amber L.

My mom picked us up a couple of copies of the Santa Fe Indian Market guide and if you read this article you will read some comments I made on Native Women in the Arts and about the Missing and Murder Indigenous Women. The article is written by America Meredith a writer for the First American Art Magazine.  You can read the article better on my Facebook page at Amber L. DuBosie-Shepherd Art!  Also I found my name on the list of artist for SWAIA! Thank you to those that have been tagging me for this article!  #santafeindianmarket #santafeindianmarket2019 #navajo #sacandfox #potawatomi #santafenewmexico #oklahoma #oklabomaartist
Some videos of our hike at the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument!  #kashakatuwe #tentrocksnationalmonument #newmexico #santafe
My hubby and I went tot he Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Park and it was a neat experience yesterday! Some of of our favorite pictures. It’s not and easy hike either so you have to have good foot work and balance. But we made it to the top of the Mesa and the view was gorgeous. I’ll post some videos!  #kashaketuwe #tentrocksnationalmonument #newmexico #santafe

"All My Relations, Pyêchiwîthenino! (Come and Eat)" Mixed Media of Pen & Ink, Watercolors, Copic Markers July 2019  Finished this new piece last month, and it was a challenge. It represents a Sac and Fox Indian House where they are getting ready for a Ceremonial Feast. I enjoy working on the little details and adding the variety of animals and people throughout the piece. It’s a large piece as well and was a challenge to get all what I needed into this piece. Our Sac and Fox people down here in Oklahoma have a Spring and Fall feast to welcome in summer and winter. For those that don't know I am wolf clan for my Sac and Fox tribe. In the smoke I tried to represent many of the clans. There are others I was not able to like Snow, Peace, and War clans. I learned in a language class that we had different ocean clans far back. Maybe our relatives up north have these clans.  #sacandfox #potawatomi #navajo #santafeindianmarket #santafenewmexico #oklahoma #oklahomaartist #nativeamerican #nativeart #wolfclan #mixedmedia #watercolor #penandink #copicmarkers
