Crow Indian artist Penni Anne Cross, (Alawa-sta-we-ches) was born in Washington state in 1939. She first studied with her portrait-painter mother, before beginning more formal studies in 1968.
Her work is commercially oriented, sentimentalizing her paintings of Native Americans of the Crow tribe. Cross' Crow name, "Alawa-sta-we-ches," means "Travels the Good Road."
Working in both oil and pastel medium, Penni Anne Cross has developed a place in the art world working with subjects close to home – her Native American family and the people she lives with.
Of the Crow Indians themselves, this contemporary artist says, “I will always strive to maintain and portray the dignity of the Native American in my painting.”
