Shelia Escobar, Mohawk, is well known for her skill at using the raised beading technique when making cushions, barrettes, purses, collars, cuffs and caps. Sheila also makes action cornhusk dolls, dressed in traditional outfits. She travels extensively selling and demonstrating her work at museums, festivals and special events.
