Aho & Hello,
My Ho-Chunk name is Huuc Co pronounced (Hoonch-Cho) meaning Blue Bear. My English name is Christopher Sweet. My family resides in the south-central area of Wisconsin. I attended the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New M. A majority of my work is in relation to my Native American culture. I paint in miniature sizes to large murals. My main medium is acrylic on stretched canvas, but I also like to incorporate different texture techniques as well. Creating art keeps me focused on the important things in my life which include; family, unity & healthy ways. I have a quiet nature and sometimes have trouble expressing myself, but art eases that challenge. I let my different moods, thoughts & feelings take shape on the canvas. My mind is always trying to find the right path in a painting, so when I begin a process there are sometimes a few other paintings underneath the completed piece of work. It can be a long journey, but it is always a therapeutic experience.
