"It is an honor to share with you, my hand woven Navajo textiles which holds sacred symbolisms of beauty, order, and harmony. I am fascinated with Blue Birds and Hummingbirds as they are often woven in my art.  I weave these sincere, and beloved little birds in their earthly manifestations to remind us that there are blessings to be received. To the world they bring a ceremony of divine energy, they beckon divine healing, and restoration. Their melodious songs resonate through the spiritual space in the universe as they summon joy, happiness, and prosperity to all. My art embodies cultural Navajo influences and traditional journeys of self-expression.”
