As an enrolled member of the Zuni Tribe, I am a self-taught Zuni carver and have been carving for about 19 years. I started carving in 1994.  I am inspired by my family and other Zuni artists and their ability to create one of a kind pieces of art.  I prefer to carve both in various shells and stone but I will also carve in amber, cottonwood, cedar and sometimes in sterling silver.  The images I like to carve are of buffalos, bears , frogs, dragonflies, eagles, fish and various maiden figures.  I sign most all my work with either my initials or my full name.  I have entered numerous Indian art shows and have won awards from the following shows:
1998  Northern Arizona Place Museum  (2nd place)
1999 Santa Fe Indian Market  (1st place)
2006 Heard Museum Juried Competition (honorable mention)
 I also do custom sizes in my creations.
Thank you for your interest in my creations.
