About R Shane Beer
My artistic career began in 1969. Instruction and direction coming from native american potter Donna Gatewood and native american silversmith Clarence Sousa. Along with them and other members of my family...that I refer to as the "brown people" a fortunate look at life and the experiences to come through their ancient eyes. Mental influence over the years coming from areas such as Parker, Arizona, Laguna, Crownpoint, New Mexico and South Texas. I have attended many juried events in Oklahoma, Arizona, Texas and New Mexico. I have over the years added to my native american roots equestrian, wildlife and western/cowboy themes. This being through several years in the race horse industry in Texas.
