Rutherford, Lisa

Lisa Rutherford is a  citizen of the Cherokee Nation. She lives on a cattle ranch and worked for the nation for 14 years before becoming a full-time artist. Her passion is 18th century and early 19th century Cherokee art and history. Her traditional pottery is made from native clay she digs and processes, hand-coils, and pit fires. She also makes the 18th century clothing and accessories that she wears for living history events, including trade shirts, leggings, wool wrap skirts, beadwork, twined bags, and is the only known Cherokee Nation artist making replicas of historic feather capes and mantles on a hand-tied net base. Oil painting is her latest endeavor, with a unique style that blends impressionism and realism.
