What can I say about Santa Fe? I LOVED SANTA FE! Met so many great natives there. Inspirational artists that are down to earth people and so many great memories made this past weekend. I finally met Felicia Gabaldon and had our pictures taken. She’s the coolest and glad to buy a painting from her folky and quirky art style that I love. I met Shane Mcsauby, who is an up and coming director/ writer. Leah Rose who is a talented photographer with her beau Robert Mesa, who is another talented photographer and artist. I’m very grateful to be inspired by these multi-talented artist. Kyle Bell, who had done a documentary on Steven Paul Judd. His movie won best documentary and made me want to drop everything and move to Los Angeles (which reminds me I need to make a trip there again). The down to earth Matika Wilbur, the amazing Sho Sho Esquiro, Jeremiah Bitsuie, Wes Studi, Adam Beach, Kawennahere Devery Jacobs, Larry Price, Mama Long Legs, Morning Star Angeline, Sierra Begay, Tytianna Harris, Lehi ThunderVoice Eagle, Tony Duncan, Steven Paul Judd, Ishkiin, OXDX Clothing…
All in all this weekend spent in Santa Fe was absolutely unforgettable…

So I had the pleasure to partake in an art workshop with Steven Paul Judd and attend the screenings on Saturday 16th at the Loft Cinema in Tucson, AZ. Also, got to be on his Instagram 🙂 and TAGGED ME! haha He is a very intricate and humbled artist; we spoke briefly of his art and told me to about how he came up with ‘The Warriors’ skateboard (which he will sell only 100- 50 at Gatherings of Nations and the other 50 online).

I have got the pleasure of hanging out with Jeff Slim from TheAllElectricKitchen studio in Phoenix, AZ. He showed me around his studio and told me of his inspirations behind some of the paintings. His perspective on cultural appropriation and interpretation of Navajo culture was amazing to listen too. I took a few pictures of his artwork and created a short clip. Enjoy.
