Please visit me during the
2022 Austin Art Studio Tour
Nov. 5-6 & 12-13, noon-6pm each day! Location: 1910 Goodrich Ave.
I am thrilled to say that la Senora is my latest accolade. She was purchased by the Houston Arts Alliance permanent collection to be showcased at the Houston airports. Keep an eye out for her!
Artist’s statement: “Texture, shape, color and design, whether contemporary or traditional, inspire my creativity. Gourds with their vast variety of shapes, large and small, have become the canvas for my impassioned mixed-media expression of natural beauty working harmoniously with contemporary elements.”
The tactile qualities and visual beauty of the materials I use inspire me every day. All of the gourds on this site began with a raw/natural gourd. To create these artful gourds, I extensively clean, carve, inlay, wood burn, paint and weave on them. I also create alcohol ink paintings with the same inks I use on gourds. Now that your interest is piqued, take a look at the rest of this site and plan to come to see me at one of my upcoming shows. I look forward to seeing you!
