He worked as a commercial artist in Phoenix in the mid-1980s, also doing illustrations for books. Johnson says his elders taught him respect for animals, especially sheep, cattle and horses, because they create a sense of belonging and bring joy to humans. Fluent in Navajo and English, Johnson teaches that the word Hózhó means balance, harmony, and beauty. Hózhó is the word by which he lives.
