This podcast is an Interview with Elmer Yazzie done during Karitos 2019. Elmer was a mainstage speaker, taught workshops and painted live on stage.
His unique use of the yucca plant for his watercolor brushes has brought many opportunities for presentations, lectures, exhibits, and seminars. Invited to show and teach in China, Germany, Israel, Belize and throughout North America, he is the recipient of numerous awards and honors. His work as both artist and educator enables the learner to understand his Navajo culture and its artistic expression.
Spirituality permeates Yazzie’s life and his art. In his words, “Art must communicate uniqueness because it is inspired.”
Yazzie resides near Gallup, New Mexico, where he enjoys visiting and conversing about art over a cup of coffee. He teaches art and coaches the cross country teams at Rehoboth Christian School.
