Master Jemez pueblo figurative pottery artist Maxine Toya (b. 1948) began painting her family’s pottery at age 8 or 9. She credits her 4th-6th grade teacher Al Momaday who was her first painting teacher. Continuing to paint throughout her high school years, Maxine attended the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) where she studied textiles and pottery. The historic Santa Fe hotel, Bishop’s Lodge, chose her Pueblo Flowers design for the hotel’s drapery. While raising children Dominique and Mia, she continued to help her mother, noted potter Marie G. Romero, with her pottery while teaching pottery to both her children (both noted potters themselves).
