Kevin Horace Quannie, member of the Water and Corn Clan on his Hopi side, and Salt Clan on his Navajo side, was born in 1960. He is a Hopi/Navajo contemporary artist and has been a carver of Kachina sculptures since 1980. Living in Kykotsmovi, on the Hopi reservation, Kevin's occupation as a tribal ranger required long hours with little pay. It was during this time while managing a small family art gallery that he took an interest in Hopi art. Katsina doll carving became a serious occupation for him with much of his inspiration credited from notable Katsina doll carvers such as Neil David, Sr. and Lowell Talashoma, Sr.

Kevin believes his choice to be an artist was an ethereal choice in expressing his inner feelings through his art. What continues to inspire and motivate Kevin as an artisan, is that his creations will make collectors proud to add his art to their own collections.
