Roxanne Swentzell is a young artist whose artistic wisdom is far beyond her years. She brings to Native American sculpture an integrity of technique and understanding of her materials. Swentzell is the niece of Nora NaranjoMorse and is also well grounded in the realm of Santa Clara pottery produced by her grandmother, her mother and her aunts.
