About The Artist:
Shane R. Hendren was born in the fall of 1970 in Gallup NM, 30 miles south of his hometown of Tohatchi on the Navajo Nation. As
a three year old his mother observed his desire and ability to draw. He drew what he was surrounded by - horses, cattle, cowboys,
and indigenous people. As he matured, Shane continued to draw, paint and explore any creative avenue that was available to him.
