She works with art students on all levels with their projects either in class or independently. In Stevens’ work visual storytelling is an essential part of her artistic practice with issues of identity and how it relates to roles within her family and her community. Her practice includes mixed media drawing and printmaking but is best known for her installation work. She creates conceptual narrations of her life as a woman, artist and a Seminole/Mvscogee person. She describes her art as “a way to explore both my individual and collective identity, a way to share, beliefs, philosophy, a world, a past, family and culture.” At the core of Stevens’ work is an understanding of her culture, tradition and identity. Her work reflects the constant changing of circumstances in contemporary Native life by social, economic or political conditions.
