Inspired by the colorful mineralized rocks of the "Painted Deserts" of our American Southwest.

I've been making these yarn and stick mandalas on and off since the 1960's, after seeing example made by Huicholi natives in central Mexico. I've taken a great deal of joy over the years trying my best to create artistic satisfaction within this framework, balancing color and design into pleasing geometric constructions. I hope my love of this artwork comes through in all I create.

I create in many sizes and shapes, but mostly I've stuck with 8-sided "ojos" that match those made by the Navajo, and more recently my own 12-sided designs, which I believe match many spiritual and religious cosmologies.

All of my ojo have specific color and design themes, which are reflected in the individual names I've given them.
