Danny Cook (Wolf)

I am 60 years old and I was born in Fairfield, Iowa. My father was half Wapello Indian and my mother was full-blooded Cherokee. I graduated from high school in Ottumwa and then moved to California. For 27 years, I worked in the school district of Visalia, California.  I was shot in the head during a mugging attack. Part of the bullet is still in my head. I returned to Iowa to be near family. I have 13 children and 21 grandchildren. Today I am wheelchair-bound because of an incident that took place in Iowa. In a dispute I was run over twice by an automobile that left me unable to walk any distance. From age twelve, I was interested in art, inspired by my Cherokee grandfather who was a painter of nature and native American themes. In addition to painting I make dream catchers and I carve ceremonial canes. I currently live in Iowa City. The head injury makes it difficult for me to remain focused and plays a major role in my current disability.  But I focus well on my artwork.  All the scenes that I paint come out of my own imagination.  I will paint a moose even though I don't know exactly what a moose looks like, or an eagle, or a waterfall; the image comes to me and I paint it, or carve it.
