Luce Artist Biography

Navajo artist Myra Tso Kaye studied art at the University of Northern Arizona, but feels that school only taught her the "scientific" side of her artwork. Kaye believes that the spiritual side came from her home and family: Her grandfather was a medicine man, as are her father and brother; her mother, Faye Tso, is a potter and herbalist. (Chuck and Jan Rosenak, The People Speak: Navajo Folk Art, 1994)
