According to Tim:
“My art embodies the long history of my family and my People. The designs for both my flutes and jewelry reflect the traditions and customs, memories, and stories acquired from my Grandparents.
I create each piece with respect for the natural beauty of the materials used: wood, precious and semi-precious stones, coral, bronze, silver, and gold. Through my art, I hope to influence future generations by honoring, preserving, and protecting Native American traditions and their distinctive arts”.
