ELLE, GWEN­DOLYN AND RAYNE CLAW (NAVAJO)

Native American Art - - YOUTH -

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.
