David Dragonfly is a Blackfeet-Assiniboine artist from Browning, Montana, where he currently resides. David attended the Institute of American Indian Art in Sante Fe, New Mexico to learn jewelry making and stone carving. David continued to develop his artistry by enrolling at the University of Montana, Missoula, where he studied with Professors Don Bunse and Jim Todd, and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting in 1988.
David draws heavily on his Blackfeet and Assiniboine native cultural traditions as sources for the main influences in his printmaking. The traditional homeland landscapes are captured beautifully in his work. David draws from the spaces of the Blackfeet Reservation and all of Montana, in images that capture native peoples' lives intertwined with the land. David's style and images are modern, yet are characteristic of the timeless Plains Indian pictographic art located throughout the Montana and Canada homeland.
