Andrea Lonjose Shirley lives in Zuni, New Mexico and is known for her comic book character pieces. She has won numerous awards and her work can be found on display in fine public and private collections throughout the southwest and it is often seen in Zuni jewelry collecting guides.
Veronica Poblano as well as Mary Ann Poncho were some of the first Zuni artists to use these figures in their jewelry in the 1970's. They both gained a following and a reputation for the popular little figures. Andrea Lonjose Shirley is best known for her use of the characters today.
