My palette of colors are strong, bold and simple. My images and subjects are interpretations of how I view my culture, my Dine (Navajo) heritage. My subjects are the high southwest desert landscapes, traditional basket, our traditional homes known as, "Hogan." I also like to paint geometric designs that our Dine rug weavers are known for. I have also incorporated the open vistas of the plains landscapes. These are just a few subjects which inspire my imagination.


I've studied art at the College of Eastern Utah and at Utah State University. Just short of a degree in Fine Arts, I started a career as a wild land firefighter. After 9 years with the U.S. Forest Service I have now put my efforts back into what I love, my artwork.
The mediums with which I work today are watercolors, acrylics and color pencils. I do at times like to mix all three mediums to complete a piece of work.
