Brett Stokes is known as an enigma in art circles. He is a celebrated "leanin' tree" greeting card artist who has created his own line, "Wild, Wild West". The more pronounced imagery associated with Brett's paintings are not the cowboy art whimsically rendered for heartfelt greeting card sentiment. Brett is better known for a strong commitment to his inner vision, the environment, as well as vivid Native American imagery including bold portraiture, but not excluding sociopolitical commentary and a voice for the natural world.

The artist's family ancestry has Native American heritage from the plains of Oklahoma. "I believe when my great aunt told me as a child, as she told my father, that we were INDIAN that I am compelled to honor and respect the old ones who prayed for us, in a good way." The artist's focus on Native American imagery began as a child in California were the artist resides. This vision continues as conceptual paintings, mono-types and sculptures in his current body of work.
