Beadwork & Porcupine Quillwork of the 19th century Plains Indian is Smith's specialty. Having learned quillwork in the sacred way of the Cheyenne River Sioux, Smith earned the right to practice the Art. Apprenticeship with one of the last of the Holy Women Quillworkers fullfilled her passion to learn the "Old ways" before they disappeared.

"I strive to retain the Spirit intended in each piece, my work is not merely a copy or replica of an artifact, it is in fact an 'Original' infused with meaning and inherently powerful."
