Smith is one of the most creative and prolific of the artists whose work in the late 70's and early 80's helped to explore pre-Santa Fe School Native American aesthetic traditions in a modern art context. Her work continues to teach viewers to appreciate the ways in which abstract and symbolic motifs in the artwork of native peoples can reverberate and give spiritual depth to contemporary paintings and drawings. Smith currently resides in the hills of New Mexico with her family and remains active in promoting her ideas and thoughts on life through her work.
