Hilaria Chavez Carrillo (Huichol).

Hilaria Chavez Carrillo Huichol with her student

Hilaria Chavez Carrillo is the widow of the late Jose Benitez Sanchez.  He was undoubtedly the best recognized Huichol artist.  There's not a museum that's done an exhibition of Huichol art without at least one of his pieces.  During his last years, Hilaria worked hand in hand with the master.  He taught her the importance of colour, and how to create depth by combining and contrasting colours, and also how to create motion.  Benitez is gone, but his style will live on in the work of his widow at his old studio.
