About the artist

The shapes of wild gourds inspire my creativity. Finding joy in the challenge of one project sparking another brings delight.

My sixteen year journey of creating gourd art began at a simple workshop. 

Once I began designing gourds on a regular basis I began the  journey of using elements found on hiking and camping trips.  Using gourds as a palate gives me the opportunity to explore and be inspired by their curves and various shapes.

Pushing creative boundaries, and asking what can be, has brought challenging projects into my hands. Exploring ways to make shapes unique, and utilitarian allows me to venture into new medium that transforms what nature has provided.
