About the Artist Anthony Chee Emerson was born in Los Angeles in 1963 after his family was relocated from the Navajo Nation. He was exposed to native ways attending inter-tribal pow-wows with his family. When he was nine-years-old. his family returned to the reservation. As is common in remote areas of the reservation, he was sent to a boarding school in Gallup, New Mexico.

Currently living in the Four Corners area, he and his wife, Michelle, own and operate Emerson Gallery in Farmington, New Mexico. featuring his own artwork as well as that of his talented family and other Navajo artists.
