Teddy Draper Art

Teddy Draper, Jr.

Native American Artist, Teddy Draper, Jr., is the son of a WWII Navajo "Code Talker" Ted Draper, Sr. and has been the recipient of many prestigious awards for his art. He is a master of pastels and excels in oils, watercolor, traditional and contemporary design Navajo jewelry. The unique Draper pastel technique, constantly refined over thirty years, is his own personal style and his interpretation and artistic vision of what he calls "them unseen colors". Ted resides on the rim of the Canyon de Chelly near his studio and gallery with his wife, noted jeweler OpheliaGarcia.

Teddy, renowned painter and teacher, conducts annual seminars, "Exquisite Excursions - A Color Exploration Workshop" and devotes much of his time and efforts to the Chinle Youth Athletic Club. See the Arizona Bluebirds Basketball Gallery
