Jim Abeita Fine Art Native American Paintings Paintings Diné Navajo signature

Jim Abeita was born in 1947 in Crownpoint, NM, on the Navajo Reservation.  Having been born and raised on the Navajo Reservation, he was exposed all his young life to the ways of Navajo families living and raising sheep in Canyon de Chelly, that marvelous beautiful canyon, sometimes called the Little Grand Canyon.  His treatments of the landscape and the people of the canyon are unmistakably accurate. 

Abeita's art is distinctly distinguished by accurate and meticulous rendering of detail.  He paints everything exactly as he sees it.  He paints the world of the Diné, their ways and places with a true sense of their identity.  No other Indian artist paints the Diné people, horses, and action like Jim Abeita.
