About the Artist
The Native Treasures Living Treasure Award winner in 2009, Uppie works in both stone and bronze. After a career in education and social work, he began sculpting after a friend presented him with a chunk of red and green alabaster. Uppie draws from both his Pueblo and Apache heritage to create flowing, contemporary images.
