"I am an enrolled member of the Temoak Tribe of Western Shoshone. I grew up on the Duck Valley Indian Reservation of the Shoshone and Paiute Nations located 100 miles northeast of Elko, Nevada on the Idaho border. My youth was filled with rich visual experiences, days spent hunting, fishing and enjoying the beauty of Nevada's outdoors with my sister and two brothers . My Dad, also a painter, and  Mom, made sure we learned how to work hard and play hard.  Our  family moved to Elko, Nevada when I was 13. There I attended school and began working for my Dad's construction. The whole family was involved, going to jobs with Dad and helping out. At that point in my life an art career was the last thing I thought I would have" - Micqaela Jones
