Brendan was born June 6, 1970 at Keams Canyon, AZ. He currently lives in Hotevilla, Third Mesa, AZ. Brendan credits his father, Robert Kayquoptewa and older brother, Samuel as the early influences in his carving. His carving is clean and his attention to the details in the painting as he portrays these Katsinam is unique to Brendan. He loves it when we love his carvings as much as he does.
