Edison’s entire family is also steeped in Navajo artistic tradition. Edison was drawn to jewelry arts as a youth and has continued to perfect his style of geometric inlay for the last three decades.

As a master craftsman, every piece that he creates has a traditional meaning. The colors and designs are carefully chosen to tell a story.

Edison has enjoyed teaching other artists and passing on his crafts throughout the years, each of which carries on a piece of his personality in ttheir art. Sharing is a very important concept to Edison. He takes great pride in passing on his belief in Navajo tradition.

Each piece of his art reflects his personality, cultural heritage, and is a display of his life as a Navajo artist. He continues to create his unique inlay and is still discovering new ways to express himself through his art.
