We have traveled around the U.S. in RV’s of different sizes. But I seem to paint more SW landscapes than anything else. I grew up in Phoenix and went to undergraduate school at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ. One of my suite mates was from Old Oraibi on the Hopi reservation and one of my roommates was from Window Rock, NM on the Navajo Reservation. I was lucky enough to visit both of their homes. I have been in love with the four corners region ever since. I manage to get back there every couple of years.
