Active in Arizona in the 1930s, Mary Ellen was one of the first Navajo artists to use watercolor to depict ceremonial genre of her culture.  She is known for the exact detailing of dress of her Indian figures and for the richness of color she achieves with watercolor.

In 1936 and 1937, she studied in Santa Fe at the Studio of Dorothy Dunn.  Among Ellen's paintings is Yeibichei Dance, which references supernatural deities, 'Yeibichei', and the ritual honoring them.  T (showing 500 of 990 characters).
