About Carla Trujillo

My name is Carla Trujillo and I have been drawn to Native American Art ever since I was a little girl. I'm what you would call a "Mestizo" part Native American and part Hispanic. I was born and raised in Northern New Mexico, and now reside with my husband and kids in the midwest.

Indian doll ornament I made several years ago. It is made with leather, felt, wire, paint and horsehair.


Layering Prints

I took an Native American Indian drypoint etching and layered it over a collagraph print. I photoshop the images until I had a composition that I was pleased with.

Indian Maiden and Child 1

It’s been a while since I last posted on this blog!! I have plans on posting more on a regular basis. I have been working on some new work and hopefully I will have it posted this coming week. The Indian Maiden and Child is a doll I created a few years back. She is made from wood, leather, horse hair, various fabrics,  feathers, and beads. She measures about 10″ in height.

Yei

 The Yei is regarded as a supernatural being by the Navajo, and they are believed to be the first to inhabit the earth. Before the Yei left earth, they left instructions with the people on how to live an easier life.

The male Yei is depicted in sandpaintings with a round head and the female Yei has an angular head.
