Roxanne Swentzell (Santa Clara Pueblo) is a fifth-generation artist from a family of potters, sculptors, educators and architects (her Aunt is potter Jody Folwell and her grandparents are Michael and Rose Naranjo). She creates her signature, figurative sculpture using both native and commercial clays, built in traditional coiling methods. Each of her figurines are conceived as individuals, with a wide range of gestures and humanistic expressions. They are full of life and detail, rendered in colored clays, paints and glazes. Swentzell has studied at the Institute of American Indian Art, Santa Fe, NM, and the Portland Museum of Art School, Portland, OR. Her work can be seen at Studio 53, New York; Four Winds Gallery, Pittsburgh, PA; Heard Museum, Phoenix, AZ; and the Denver Art Museum, CO.
