About the Artist
(Born 1950, Navajo) Niece of Leo Begay and granddaughter of Hosteen Beginni, Rosie Yellowhair has created story-telling sand paintings for over forty years.
Yellowhair collects and grinds her own sand, applying it with adhesive to a surface, later sealing the granules in place. Reportedly each composition takes anywhere from 3 months to 2 years to complete.
Since 2013 Yellowhair has received awards at the Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair. Since 2017 she has been a part of the Santa Fe Indian Market, winning First Place as well as Best of Division for her sandpaintings during each of the years.
