    Dominic East

    Dominic East (1990-- ) from Walpi Village, First Mesa, AZ. Born to the Corn Clan. Grandson of Tino Youvella. Dominic has been carving since he was 15 years old. He began with old style or flat Katsinam and has moved to full-figures and sculptures as well as paintings and drawings. Dominic tells us he learned by watching his grandfather and uncles Preston Youvella, Darrell Youvella, Alex Youvella and his step father Randy David. "I carve for the art of it. I carve to become better by looking at all aspects of the art for the good feeling I get from the Katsina dolls and their spirits."
