When I was a boy growing up in Tennessee, I never thought I would be in the career I have now. I grew up hunting and fishing with my dad and my brothers and spent many hours reading books about Native Americans. After I enlisted and was sent to Vietnam, I was stationed at Davis Montham Air Force Base here in Tucson and opened my gallery in 1972.
Over the years I have developed a fine network of friends, dealers and collectors who help me find wonderful things. So please browse my collection and I hope you might find a valuable addition to your own.

Antique Indian Art
Thursday to Saturday 11am to 5pm or by appointment.
Friends, since I’m a “one man band” and out looking at collections and doing appraisals quite often, it’s sometimes best to call my cell (520) 444-3339 before coming over, as I don’t want to miss you.
I offer an appraisal service for older (pre 1945) American Indian items, Pre-Columbian Art, Mexican Antiques and Spanish Colonial items, early Western and Mexican Paintings and all other art mediums. As well as later pottery and weavings by the Matriarchs – Maria Martinez, Lucy Lewis, Nampeyo family, Margaret Tafoya, etc. and weavings by Daisy Tauglechee and all the other great Two Grey Hills weavers.
Please send photos with dimensions and condition via email or text so I can quickly tell you if it’s something I can assist you with. Or stop by the gallery with your items. I am willing to travel for large collections or major items.
Yes. As a Charter Member of the Antique Tribal Art Dealers Association I fully guarantee the authenticity of the material I offer 100%.
