Elsie Holiday often chooses to represent the butterfly in her art for the pure and simple fact that she is enamored with them. To Elsie, the butterfly is a creature that is focused on beauty and self-improvement. Elsie believes that, like the butterfly, it is possible to metamorphose into a more-refined human being. Through education, meditation, and perspiration the sky is the limit, and Elsie constantly works to make it happen.

About the artist:

Navajo Basket Weaver Elsie Holiday

Considered one of the best Navajo basket weavers, Elsie Stone Holiday married into the famed Douglas Mesa family of weavers. Weaving baskets has become almost an addiction for her. "When I go two or three days without weaving I get anxious to get started again," she says. She weaves 12 hours a day, 5 days a week. "Sometimes I think, 'How long can this last?'", she wistfully states, but for now she is content with her art, finding immense satisfaction in creating premier quality baskets.
