Louise Bia Yazzie (1953- )

+ Add Artist to My Preferences


Louise Bia Yazzie comes from a very large family of Diné (Navajo) weavers. She is the daughter of Betty and Kee Bia. Although Louise is quite adept at the large Navajo loom, she is best known for her fine quality miniature (about 2" X 4") weavings. She creates spectacular Yeibichais and pictorials, all of the various contemporary regional styles, multiple patterned pieces as well as revivals of the turn-of-the-century (Lorenzo Hubbell and J. B. Moore era) designs. She won a First Place award for a Yeibichai design at the 1995 Gallup Ceremonial.
