Jean is a self-taught artist who fell under the spell of gourds nearly 20 years ago. She has won awards in both local and national gourd art competitions as well as in Masterworks of New Mexico Fine Art Show.
Gourds offer natural beauty in so many different shapes and sizes and there are endless ways to decorate, enhance and use them.
"First and foremost, gourds are fun! They are a great medium for my favorite themes of folk art, native cultures and the natural world."
