About the Artist
"When it comes to doing anything, you just can't beat hard work and focus."
Robert comes from a family of artists. His grandfather was Haudenosaunee Artist Stan Hill. Stan single-handedly revived the Haudenosaunee practice of carving antler and bone. Stan worked extremely hard to develop his art. Robert gets his inspiration and drive from this same set of genes.
Robert spent nearly 20 years as an IT Professional but grew tired of the politics and unfulfilled. In 2013, he resigned from IT and started Tuscarora WoodWorks. Built on skills he acquired while doing woodworking as a hobby for nearly 7 years while employed, this self-taught artist and businessman continues to pursue his art and craft. He currently lives on the Tuscarora Nation (located near Lewiston, NY) where he spends his time creating new designs, running Tuscarora WoodWorks, and working hard to keep his culture alive.
