Rose B. Simpson Ė Thinking and Creating Outside the Box!

Friends of Indian Art


Friends of Indian Art (FIA) invites their members to a program presenting Rose B. Simpson, a native of Santa Clara Pueblo, who was raised among an extended family of artists. Her mother, Roxanne Swentzell, is a well-known Indigenous ceramic sculptor, and her father, Patrick Simpson, was a contemporary artist working in wood and metal. Rose’s artistic expression has taken forms including sculpting, printmaking, drama and creative writing, as well as music and dance. Being of both Indigenous and Anglo descent, her work often signifies the continual struggle between the two worlds many modern Indigenous people experience. Rose is currently studying Automotive Science at Northern New Mexico College and sees this path as her personal passion and new direction. Not a FIA member? Join by calling 505-982-6366 ext. 100.
