Benson Halwood

Largely self-taught, the artist was born in Keams Canyon, on the Navajo reservation. He works in many different media, always experimenting with new materials and ideas.
His vivid watercolors often reflect images of his homeland: landscapes with a sense of endless space; intimate secenes of hogans or teepees. He also has been doing more abstract images, and petroglyph designs on handmade paper. Sometimes he paints on natural slate, which gives the renderings of Anasazi cliff dwellings extra dimension.

He as won prizes at various shows aroung the country. His work is carried in Arizona and on both coasts, as well as here.
