1859 - Artist and Educator Sara Siestreem

Spent the afternoon with Native American artist, painter, weaver, educator, theorist, consultant and all around amazing gal Sara Siestreem for 1859 Magazine.  She let me into her space which I found almost sacred, full of her art and paints and inspiration.  There were quotes she had written on the walls and just about everything was infused with both a sense of beauty and history. Spending time with her was very peaceful and when I found out she had no cel phone or car, I wasn't surprised. I documented her as she worked and occasionally we would chat about work or boys or life, just like girlfriends.  I left the shoot feeling both drained and invigorated with a smile on my face.
