Twila Guerrero is a member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes from the Flathead Indian Reservation in Western Montana. She is the eldest daughter of Navy Veteran, Harold Irvine, who's hitched horsehair bridals, hat bands, belts and key fobs are a testimony of patience and artistic talent. Her mother, Monica Wall, is an expert bead work artist and crafts person who taught her a great deal about bead work and jewelry. While working for Bead World in Phoenix and taking several art classes to expand her knowledge in digital arts and photography she continued to develop her passion for bead work. While working at San Xavier Health Center in Tucson she met talented bead artist, Vivian Enos of the Tohono O'odham Nation. Twila found an amazing mentor in Vivian and her natural talent for circular peyote stitch bead work. Twila’s love of photography has prompted her to continue to grow technically in this area so she can help preserve Indigenous arts and instruction through photo documentation.
