Kevin Horace Quannie
Kevin has received many awards and has established himself as a quality artist. He specializes in carving contemporary Kachina dolls using cottonwood roots, he then takes artwork one step beyond traditional methods by transforming some of his artwork into bronze sculptures that capture all the beauty and textures of the natural cottonwood grains from the original carving. Feathers, originally woodburned one by one, glisten in gold and amber in his bronze sculptures. In the last few years, Kevin has taken his carvings from the wax part of the Bronzes and transforms the images to another field, that of Blown Glass images.
Kevin also paints on canvas with a concept of traditional images to contemporary, the last 17 years of his 32 year career as an Artist, he believes, “The paintings have taken a new direction all by its self.”

Founders & Management
Native Art Market is a Native American owned and operated family business. Denise and Heather are mom and daughter.
They are now in their fifth generation and thriving from the tourism industry. Denise and Heather make and sell their own jewelry, pottery and deal directly with tourists and locals throughout Grand Canyon, Sedona and Phoenix area. In 2012, Heather branded her family’s personal business Navajo Secrets to make it possible for clientele and artisans to find us easily in person or online. In 2018, Heather and Denise branded and created Native Art Market to make it possible for other clientele and artisans to find us easily in Phoenix Metropolitan area. Since then, our marketing strategies have expanded. Navajo Secrets is still a nomadic business and relies on vending and art shows. However, our brand, knowledge, and resources, have made it possible to provide Native handcrafted items locally and worldwide.
