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.
I am always buying, selling and taking consignments. I also offer appraisals for fair market value, insurance and donation purposes.
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 collection.

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.
