My gourd designs are inspired by my love of the Southwest

Since I took my first class in gourd art in 2006, I was hooked. It’s the perfect background to express my love for the Southwest. My husband is involved in the less glamorous side of gourds, the cleaning and preparation. Thanks to him, I can dedicate my time to the creation and design processes.

My husband Larrie and I moved from Pennsylvania to Tucson in 2006, to retire in Saddlebrooke to build our dream home. Not only have we found our forever home, but it allowed me to enter a world of art. I continue to take classes to broaden my skills and learn new techniques.

I’m a member of the Saddlebrooke Fine Art Guild and participate in several art shows throughout the year. I’m also a member of the Tucson Old Pueblo Gourd Patch and have won numerous ribbons at the Wuertz Gourd Festival.

You can find my work in Absolutely Art Gallery & Gifts, located in Catalina.
