ABOUT THE ARTIST
One artist featured at the recent Wheelwright Artists Market, Deanna Tenorio (Santo Domingo/Pomo), says “Heishi is the main focus of my life.” Jewelry-making has been in Deanna’s family for generations. On her father’s side, Deanna was taught by her grandfather Santiago Coriz and by her aunt and uncle, Mary J. and Albert Coriz.
Deanna will talk about stone and shell in her award-winning mosaic work. “I like working with different shells and stones because it brings out the creativity in me. I know that I bring a great deal of joy to the recipients of my jewelry. It makes me very proud to see our tradition kept alive in my artwork.”
