Artist Profile & Biography
Teddy Draper, Jr. was born on October 3, 1949, and is the son of a former United States Marine Corps Navajo Code-talker who had served in the South Pacific during World War II. He is a member of the Navajo Nation and calls Canyon De Chelly and Canyon Del Muerto "home". His maternal clan is Naashgali Dine'e, paternal clan is Ashiihi, maternal grandfather's clan is todicheeni, and paternal grandfather's clan is tohahelini.
Teddy works mainly in pastels, a medium for which he is very well known. He employs an individual technique that has been constantly refined and improved upon for the past thirty-five years, incorporating under painting pastel in order to achieve the highest brilliance, dimension, and resonance of color in this medium. He attributes his present style to a feeling for "unseen colors."
In recent years Draper has conducted artists workshops and seminars instructing artists in his technique.
The opportunity for an artist is nothing short of a 'revelation' and is graciously offered by renowned painter and teacher, Teddy Draper, Jr. in his 'Exquisite Excursions' artists workshops.

Teddy Draper, Jr.
My father was a Navajo Code Talker. His wartime experiences developing a code that utilized the Navajo language taught how important our Navajo culture is to our country. For me that is the central lesson: that diverse cultures can make a country richer and stronger.

I've never had a kid come back and say, 'Thanks, your program kept me out of trouble', Draper mused, 'but I have had them come back and say, 'I just graduated from college. Thanks for letting me play for you.'

MICHAEL DEAN HIGGINS has long been enchanted by Native American Jewelry and took his first course in Navajo-style silversmithing in the early seventies.His jewelry is produced with care and precision not found in mass production.He is the entire process , from designing , producing cabochons to silversmithing.Though he cannot document his native heritage , there is no question that his skill and appreciation for native art stem from unproven ancestral well.And as he says , ultimately , all of us are descended from tribal people..
