About The Artist:
Tiwa Native of Isleta Pueblo, New Mexico.
Isleta Pueblo is located 13 miles south of Albuquerqe, NM.
The articulation of my artwork is a reflection of my Native culture. I would like my work to preserve a story and educate who we are
many generation from now. Most of my pottery is in a contemporary style made from clays that I gather. The bronze sculptures
are produced from my clay originals.
