Long regarded as one of the Northwest’s most beloved contemporary Native American artists, Lillian Pitt (Wasco/Yakama/Warm Springs) grew up on the Warm Springs Reservation in central Oregon. Her mother’s Wasco family lived near now-submerged Celilo Falls, and her father’s Yakima relatives lived across the river near the pictograph of Tsaglaglal, or She-Who-Watches.

Pitt, who became an artist in her mid-30s, began with mask making. She became interested in, and gained expertise, in Japanese raku and anagama firing methods. The pictographs, petroglyphs, and legends of her ancestors are the foundation of her visual language. Pitt works in several media, including bronze, glass, and prints.
