Michele Tapia-Browning of the Pueblo of Pojoaque and Santa Clara Pueblos is continually engaged in the process of creating beautiful and unique images reflective of her Tewa ancestors. Her two role models are her mother, Lu Ann Tafoya and her grandmother, Margaret Tafoya from Santa Clara Pueblo. Michele incorporates a combination of age-old techniques and stipple drawing (creating drawings mostly from dots) in her imagery, digital art and pottery. In 2007, Michele received the “Standards Award” at SWAIA. Her goal is to keep tradition living within her art and by drawing the beauty of each piece from inspirations in her environment.
