Marvin Gabaldon is a professional bead work artist from the pueblos of Acoma, Taos and Ohkay Owingeh–where he grew up. He has been beading for 40 years, a skill he was originally taught by his mother and has honed into beautiful artwork.  He enjoys beading in Peyote Stitch, Applique, Lane Stitch, and beading on the loom. Marvin also loves teaching and his passion is teaching those who are interested in this art form, no matter their age or skill level.
Marvin has been selling his bed work for 25 years. His designs are Pueblo symbols and concepts of old that are transformed into his vision of them. After many years he no longer draws patterns or designs and his colors choices are always different, making his pieces unique and one of a kind.
