After 36 years of persistence and searching for his true calling, Louis David Valenzuela has come into his own; his sculptures, masks and paintings that highlight his Yoeme heritage and culture are a gift to Tucson. They are now seen, appreciated, and collected by a new market of art lovers. An ambassador and advocate for the arts of his people, Louis opens the door for non-Yoemen to learn about the Yoeme people in a visually exciting way. More importantly, Louis remains true to his roots, proud of his ancestry. He is recognized within his own community for his work and is a mentor to youngsters who, like himself, wish to pursue art as a means of sharing their ancient tradition and culture.
