Linda Sioux Henley

   Linda Sioux Henley’s penchant for Western Art came naturally as her family participated in professional rodeos throughout her early years. She is a member of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas and a direct descendant of Alamo defender Gordon C. Jennings, one of the oldest heroes in the famous battle. Through her mother, Linda acquired her Cherokee heritage.
   Her artistry first came in hair styling where she owned her salon for 13 years.  A friend urged her to try cake decorating, and she became a prize-winning student and teacher in the field. At this point, she decided she would like to be creating more lasting Art, and she enrolled in a sculpting class at the Cowboy Artist’s Museum in Kerrville, TX.  
   Henley now works in several medias including bronze sculpture and oil Painting, but clay sculpting is her favorite.   Her Sinapau Studio-Sinapau meaning “Sacred Fire” in the native tongue-features her stoneware depictions of the majestic Indians of the American West and their culture.


 

 

 

   In 1990, Henley was commissioned by Opryland, Nashville, TN., to sculpt  her first life size bronze. The "Folklorico  Dancer" bronze sculpture was placed  at Fiesta Texas, now Six Flags Fiesta Texas  in San Antonio,TX.

  The Daughters of the Republic of Texas district VIII
