About the Artist: Di'Orr Greenwood is a multi-disciplinary Diné (Navajo) artist who specializes in woodburning skateboards, native cedar wood flute making, and creating beautiful seamstress designs.
Born and Raised on the lands of Dinétah ( Navajo Federal Reserve Lands known as Navajo Reservation), she was inspired by her community & family, where each person had an artistic skill that could be used to contribute and generate income for the family.
As a child she watched her aunt bead traditional regalia outfits and her late uncle introduced her to flute making and pyrography art. Di'Orr continued to learn different artforms and used these trades and her passion for skateboarding to launch her own lifestyle brand centered around giving back to the youth.
Di’Orr’s products include everything from beautifully intricate woodburned skateboards, to custom designed T-shirts and merch, and creative upcycled works like earrings made from upcycled skate wheels!
Her work has been featured in films like The Mystery of Now, as well as The Navajo Times, The Auty Museum, The Heard Museum, the Sovereign Santa Fe Fine Art Market, and at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
Di'Orr Greenwood Designs gives back and works to create opportunities for youth in the Dinétah Homeland by supplying extra new and used skate gear, teaching workshops, and providing everyday goods to the community.
