About Me

I started painting gourds after taking some classes from Karen Caldwell  in Palos Park, Il. about four years ago.  I fell in love with gourds and have done some but not as many as I would like to. My favorite that I have done is an ocean drum with sea life on it.  I love to do arts and crafts. I paint in watercolers, oils, and acrylics.  I do also woodcarving and photography. I am also a bird watcher and have done many bird counts in the past for differant organizations.. Doing projects, anything dealing with nature, including animals and Native American type items are my favorites.. I also like to make wreaths, etc. using all natural materials.

About Me
I am a grown-up child at heart with 3 children, 1 stepdaughter, 13 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren and numerous pets. I discovered gourds in 1998 and found they were the perfect artist's surface. Over the years I've experimented with many media and especially enjoy woodburning, carving and painting gourds.

Every gourd shape, each technique, all types of embellishments inspire me to new artistic endeavors. While I am still in the process of finding my own distinctive style of gourd art, I am having a great time learning from other artists and trying new ideas.

I am the regional coordinator for the San Bernardino County Patch of the California Gourd Society. I also hold memberships in the American Gourd Society, Canadian Gourd Society, Arizona Gourd Society, Fallbrook Gourd Patch, Orange County Gourd Patch, Redlands Art Association, National Wood Carver's Association, Society of Decorative Painters, Memory Box Artists, Gypsy Tolers, and am a published author.

I have had the honor of being a contributing artist to the Gourd Patch Quilt Project, the Gourd Patch Wall Hanging, the Canadian Gourd Society Wall Hanging, Ashanti Mother project, the  Message In A Bottle project for servicemen and women overseas, and Gourd Calendars 2004 and 2005 published by Margie Malone.   I have also been selected as a judge for an online gourd competition. Another thrill was taking part in the artwork on the California Traveling Gourd, in collaboration with another San Bernardino Patch member, Chris Souza.  I have won numerous awards with my gourds and love to "spread the gourd glow". My gourds have been seen in the Jasmin Gallery in La Jolla, California and  currently at the Redlands Art Association Gallery.

As well, I am an avid gardener and a large portion of my garden is now happily taken over by gourd vines.

I am active in my church choir and teach in Vacation Bible School. I'm delighted to be a member of the Red Hat Society and am an active Senior Center member.
