Art is about balance, inner peace, confidence, and focus. Living in the Navajo Reservation was a revolution in my art and style. It Is were my heart will always be. Attending and participating in many of the traditional ceremonies of the Dine’ taught proper depiction and altered depiction with respect for the culture.
I was an educator in the southwest on a reservation for many many years. I have made a lot friends and return as much as possible to recharge and re inspire as well as a personal guide for people seeking the hidden beauty and culture of the southwest. Every day brought something new in the my hikes in the high desert. Sometimes it was spending time in the sweat lodge, hiking in the vast rocky formations, stumbling upon an ancient Anasazi outlier, or just listening to the desert wind whistle. I feel very lucky to let the colors and feel of the southwest touch my soul.
