Native American Art - - DIVERSE ARTS -

“I be­lieve in the nat­u­ral el­e­ments of the Mother Earth to guide me through the cre­ative process. Through ev­ery piece made and in my think­ing process, I fol­low the steps of Hozho. This is my foun­da­tion as a Navajo artist...the bag is called In­dian Cow­girls…the bead­work is con­structed first then placed into the sil­ver­work. I use a com­bi­na­tion of nat­u­ral deer hide that is tanned by hand, and also the tas­sels are made from [hand­spun] Navajo Churro sheep.”
