Shamie Encinas

My name is Shamie Encinas, I am Tohono O’Odham from the San Xavier Reservation. I graduated from the University of Arizona with Bachelors in Fine Arts. I currently reside in Phoenix, Arizona.

My paintings have always been a reflection of my upbringing and myself. I paint keeping my Him-dag (history, traditions) close to my heart. I convey this with text and symbolism underneath the layers of bright colors.
