Reynold “Raindog” Kiyoshk

 

Born in Walpoe Island Ontario Reynold Kiyoshk moved to Detroit at the age of seven.  Later he lived on a small acreage in New Mexico where he studied art and southwest native history.  There he raised children and ran a service station as a source of income.  He later retuned to Detroit and attended MoTeC.  Throughout this period drinking increasingly became a problem for Reynold.  However he was able to later quit through rehabilitation at Brentwood in Windsor Ontario.  Through change he learned about love and life and developed an appreciation for the good in life – the light that exists there.  With time he changed and grew and now reviews his life through his artwork.
