Desert Divas: Mabel Dodge Luhan and Roxanne Swentzell

By Nancy Walkup, posted on Jul 7, 2014

Our first stop on our Desert Divas trip today was the Rancho de Taos Church just south of Taos. The sky was deep blue and there were no cars parked behind the church to get in the way of photographs.

After our tour of Mabel Dodge Luhan's house, we traveled south to the Tower Gallery, home base of Roxanne Swentzell. She met us and graciously talked to us for an hour.

Roxanne's work is incredibly unique; it is personal and universal at the same time.
