For The Discriminating Collector
Becky Olvera Schultz creates contemporary art in the Native American and Southwestern theme, specializing in Native American style masks and Southwestern style masks. Her Native American themed masks are not wearable or ceremonial but are her personal representation of indigenous peoples made of clay, painted and adorned. They may be described as portrait masks as they are very life-like. Her masks are her original sculptures and are not made from castings taken off a the face of a person. She takes great care in detail when creating these masks so that they are as realistic and life-like as possible. She has featured her masks in hundreds of exhibitions, including six solo museum exhibitions and has received awards for her work. Her art has been featured in several publications including Cowboys & Indians, Native Peoples and, most recently, in Wild West Magazine's Art of the West section. Becky's body of art work also includes Southwest themed clay and gourd masks, two dimensional mixed media works, serigraphs (hand pulled screen prints), rawhide shields, dolls, wall plaques, digital & photographic works. She is significantly known for her Native American style masks which have been the primary focus of her museum exhibits.
