Alice Seely is an amazing woman and an amazing artist.  She had a rewarding young life living in Santa Fe near Canyon Road and Garcia Street with her parents in a John Gaw Meem adobe home.  The family was well off financially.  Her family heritage is mixed Indian, Spanish and Anglo as were many Santa Fe residents of the time.  Her paternal grandparents lived in a small Spanish village in Northern New Mexico and were descended from Pueblo and Comanche Indians.  Her biological father was a New Mexico muralist and landscape painter.  Her step father was Navajo artist Narciso Abeyta (Ha-So-De), father of artist Tony Abeyta.  Alice is a painter, jeweler, and amateur horticulturist, raising hundreds of Iris on her farm in Ruidoso, New Mexico.
