You are invited to explore this Virtual Museum at your leisure and visit us frequently.
ONLINE EXHIBITIONS INTRODUCTION SECTION
Online Exhibitions By Yagniza are related to her Personal Testimonies also at this site. This is a first time exhibit of a collection of her work. She is Navajo-Basque-Hispanic, was born, raised and lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She is the Director of The Blue Spruce Way Art Studio. About her Studio, she said: "A way is a Navajo ceremonial. So I named my Art Studio after my favorite tree and a ceremonial. I specialize in quilting, photography and framing, collages, writing stories and whatever else pleases me. It is a place I can dream, imagine and wonder."
