Art has been a passion of mine since I was able to walk. My appreciation of Art has grown through my education, teaching, museums, galleries, artist’s homes, festivals, schools, and architectural wonders that I have visited on my world travels.
Through the years, I have been an Art Teacher, Collector, Business Owner and Artist. My passion has always been creating art pieces with natural found objects.
It seemed the dirtier I got the more fun and creative I became! After being introduced to gourds, that inspired me to work as a multi media artist.
So why do gourds inspire me? My love of gourds enables me the joy of, design, carving, weaving, embellishing, and painting. Thus creating artwork while working in a green environment, utilizing natural products to enhance my designs… The gourd & wood mediums, allows my heart and soul to soar with the creation of unique custom pieces. Each piece is unique and filled with a part of my heart, so I hope you enjoy the voyage through my site.
