Joe Cajero, Jr. is a descendent of a long line of Pueblo artists, including his father, a painter and mother, a potter. He knew early on that he would be an artist. After high school he studied at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
He studied two-dimensional art, with a few classes in traditional pottery making. His mentor and cousin, Felix Vigil, was teaching these at the time and provided the young artist with priceless insight, He taught me how to look and where to look inside myself, so that I didnt have to draw from other artists in order to find inspiration. I admire the work of other artists, but I look only to myself to create.
Sculpting limited edition bronzes has has become the area that Cajero is enjoying success. It allows his creativity with clay to be utilized and more than one piece is produced.
