Yazzie, Ed

Ed Yazzie is a member of the Navajo tribe and with his family resides on the Navajo Nation. “Art has always been a part of my life,” states Ed.

It is amazing to see the intricate details and quality of Ed’s work, who is a self-taught artist who has been sculpting for sixteen years. His first carvings were people out of cottonwood roots. The decision to become a full time artist came after many years of working and doing sculpting part time. His sculptures tell a story about Ed’s determination, ability, devotion and eagerness to look beyond life’s challenges. “Sometimes I am in awe of my own creations and I believe the Creator has entrusted me with a talent and I want to make good use of it.”

Ed’s sculptures are a blend of contemporary and traditional forms of Native Americans and their lifestyles.
