These are links to friends and artists that continue to inspire me.

Judy Valenzuela is a gifted artist and writer who pushes her creative boundaries through her paintings, stories and poems. Her creative energy pushes all of those around her to explore new artistic ideas. Being married to her gives me the special privilege of seeing her creations come to life.
Jon and Lupita McClanahan are members of the Diné (Navajo Nation). They live in Canyon De Chelly on land that has been in Lupitas family for over three hundred years. Canyon De Chelly is the spiritual center of the Navajo and Jon and Lupita offer wonderful guided journeys throughout the Canyon while sharing their lives and culture.
John Fox is a healer of people through his gift of poem making and the author of two books; "Finding What You Didn't Lose: Expressing Your Truth and Creativity Through Poem-Making" and "Poetic Medicine: The Healing Art of Poem-Making". I have worked with John over to past 10 years to help organize his yearly workshop "The Nature Of Poetry" where we spend time in Canyon De Chelly, Arizona, the sacred and spiritual center of the Navajo Nation. Their hosts, Jon and Lupita McClanahan share the love of their land and culture through storytelling, humor and just being. The late Galen Rowell has made some of the most striking photographs of the Sierra Nevada mountain range and shared his wisdom through his writing. Galen and Barbara's legacy lives on through Mountain Light Photography.
