Robert Montoya was born in 1947, and is the son of Ohkay Owingeh painter and former Santa Fe Indian School art department head, Gerónima Cruz Montoya. Mrs. Montoya began her teaching career as assistant to Dorothy Dunn. Robert Montoya has multiple degrees in architecture and also has experience as an architect.  He resides at Sandia Pueblo.

 

Robert is not a prolific painter as his career in architecture occupies most of his time.  This painting is a wonderful combination of pictographic art and realistic representation.  The hunter was rendered in a style reminiscent of pictograph art and the deer is very realistica pleasing contrast.
