My Christian name is Sid Armstrong. My Ponca Native name is
Wash-cauh-ma-thay, means strong walk
, or walks with effort
My Mother named me after my Grandfather.
I am a direct descendant of Horse Chief Eagle. The last
hereditary Chief of the Poncas. My Mother is Eagle clan, and my
father was Buffalo Clan, from the Otoe Missouria.
I have lived in Northern Oklahoma all of my life. My love of
art began at an early age in my life. I would paint off and on
over the years but didn't really get into it until I went to Haskell
Indian Junior College back in the early 70's. I had the privilege
of learning Indian Art from Dr. Richard Dick West. He was very
talented in his work and teaching. It stayed with me all of my
life. I later took watercolor classes to help improve my
My traditional way of painting I learned with acrylics, watercolor, and tempera.
I now do digital art along with my traditional painting.
All of my prints are done professionally in my paper and ink quality.
I continue to do both styles of painting.
I certainly hope you enjoy my work. Thank you..
