Navajo Rugs Buying Tips

    One of the most notable points for trying to determine the authenticity of a Navajo rug is the manner in which it is woven. There are two different types of looms that account for differences in the weave.

Jayne Simmons Williams 1934 - 2010

Williams had no formal art training other than a number of three and five-day painting workshops. She studied on her own, experimented with different mediums, techniques and styles, and portrayed her emotional feelings for the people and scenery of the southwest in her work. Remarkably versatile, she painted in a variety of media and depicted subjects ranging from still life and lanscape to portraiture and wildlife. Striking lighting, dramatic shadows and clear exciting colors identify her paintings.

Although not a native of the southwest, Williams had the talent to paint as if she were. At an art show, one old rancher was heard talking to another, "This fella can really paint a branding scene 'cause I can smell the hide burning'!"

This talented artist received numerous awards, first places, the Grumbacher Bronze Medallion and Purchase Awards. Two of her paintings were selected as cover art for New Mexico Stockman magazine. “The Road Watchers” appears on the cover of the New Mexico Stockman 1986 Directory issue. Her paintings are in the collections of banks in New Mexico and Texas and in numerous private collections throughout the United States.

                “My greatest satisfaction is in sharing my God-given talent with the viewing public 
                 and to have my paintings evoke an emotional response from them.” 
                                                                                Jayne Simmons Williams, 1934-2010
