Following a career in illustration, Wooten turned to fine art, presenting Native American works in a unique contemporary fashion. He has created over forty paintings that celebrated George Catlin's historic trip to Europe in 1845 when he brought along a group of Ojibwa from Iowa while exhibiting his works throughout Europe. Wooten's paintings depict the Ojibwa with masterworks from the Louvre. His art has appeared in Southwest Art, July 2004 and The Arizona Republic, January 29, 2004.
