Luce Artist Biography

Jody Stewart-Keller is a self-taught bead artist whose work is inspired by her Scottish and Native American heritage, the strong women of her family, and her deep sense of the “Sacred Feminine.” She typically employs the “peyote” stitch, a process that resembles painting with glass beads. The artist uses her materials to evoke images, emotions, color, and voice, creating “a visual narrative for the soul.”
