A Little About Mario Cruz

Sedona has been home for me for over 25 years, I’ve lived in the desert southwest for most of my life.  Art is one of my passions, first for myself and then for the world, my art has taken on many forms, spirit the unnameable force behind and driving it all.  My life’s inner journey learning from native elders around the world, the way of life, the ways of the earth, of the stars, of the galaxies, the way of relationships.  This journey took me to Sundance, completing four years.   My first year dancing attached for four days.  I’ve learned a few things from this experience and still think there’s a lot more to come. I needed to go deep within to do some much needed house cleaning, to come from a good place with it all.   The Art has become my way of life…a learning and a teaching within itself.  It is now time to send the art and the message out to the world. 

   In the creation of the Art I open my heart and my mind, Tree-talk I call it, and let the spirit work.
