I was raised surrounded by art and culture of Native American and Hispanic Peoples from communities surrounding Santa Clara Pueblo ( Khapo Owingeh in Tewa, my native language). I was taught a wide range of mediums like traditional black pottery by my grandma, painting and drawing by my mom and the love of building things by my dad. I started “Black Bear Hand Crafted” to share my love of Native American, Hispanic, and Northern New Mexico design with a touch of Vintage Americana for your home.
