Kaylynn Sullivan, known as TwoTrees, is a multi-media artist, sculptor, book writer, and life coach. As a Native and African American woman, TwoTrees lives a spiritual lifestyle that focuses on rekindling the indigenous past through remembering, embodying, modeling, and sharing. She creates multimedia artworks which highlight the divine relationship between human and nature, while bringing attention to the sacred space we call Earth.

Maka Wicasa, meaning “Earth People,” is a lithograph with mixed-media collage materials that hold religious significance in Native and African American heritage. Inspired by the Lakota Indian concept Mitakuye Oyasin, “meaning we are all related,” TwoTrees invites the viewer to look inward at their relationship with themselves, the Earth, and the people around them.
