Jeffrey “Handsome Dog” Cree was one of the original artists we found in the “Native American Art Empowers INVISIBLE PEOPLE” show sponsored by RED LODGE TRANSITION SERVICES. He is one of the best known artists at Oregon State Penitentiary in Salem, and his large mural of the prison as seen in the early days (it was opened in l864) and as it looks today greets visitors when they first enter the reception area at the prison. Many of his smaller works decorate the visiting room. A master of both ball point pen and tempera (gouache) mediums, Cree works in the hobby shop and will also do work on commission. He specializes in works portraying Native American Ceremonial Dances.
