Biography from Adobe Gallery:
Potsúnú (Ohkay Owingeh-formerly San Juan Pueblo) attended the Santa Fe Indian School, the University of New Mexico, Claremont College, and the University of Albuquerque, and studied under Dorothy Dunn, Alfredo Martinez, Jean Ames, and Kenneth Chapman.   So it is no surprise that she became an educator herself.

“This highly respected teacher has devoted the major portion of her career instructing others.  Only recently did she fine the necessary time for her own painting.” (Snodgrass 1968).

According to the artist, “My style of painting is very simple. My subjects are mainly traditional dances, home scenes, and designs.  My inspiration also comes from Mimbres figures, pictographs, and petroglyphs.  I continually experiment with new forms and styles.” (Shutes and Mellick 1979).
