ELLE, GWENDOLYN AND RAYNE CLAW (NAVAJO)
Art runs in the blood for sisters Elle, Gwendolyn and Rayne Claw, who each have their own distinct styles and art forms. Currently represented by the True West Gallery in Santa Fe, 16-year-old Elle is a painter, a jewelry artist and a metalsmith, crafting whimsical bracelets and silver rings (pictured). “Painting is therapy to me. I tell my story through my paintings, and that’s what helps me calm my nerves,” says Elle. Gwendolyn, 13, enjoys photographing comical and unexpected situations, as well as highly detailed shots that teeter on the mystical. She shoots her photos using a Canon digital camera. The youngest of the artists in the family, Rayne, 12, began painting at just four years old and loves creating artwork involving animals and people.
