Johnson is drawn to the beauty of Native American art as practiced by the Navajo and Hopi tribes. She has recently expanded her artistic interests to include ceramics through classes at Dixie State University in St. George, Utah.
Cordell Naseyoma was born in Keams Canyon and grew up in the village of Hotevilla-Bacavi on Third Mesa in northern Arizona. After completing his education, Cordell decided to make katsina carving his profession using the “old” methods he learned from elders and his friend and contemporary, Ed Seechoma. The katsinam portrayed by Cordell’s carvings are believed by the Hopi to be spiritual messengers. In the traditional way, Cordell collects all of his materials from nature.
