Artist Statement

All my life I have been creating but never thought of what I did as "art" until I discovered gourds. The gourd has become my passion and has changed my life. The opportunity to offer art in a unique way with such a different medium was the perfect challenge and has become one of my main focuses. Spending time discovering new techniques, designs, embellishments and applying them to gourds fills most of my time. Also, the wonderful art lovers, clients and artists I have met have truly added another dimension to my world. I am grateful.

HIDDEN IN THE HILLS - STUDIO 30Jane has been a working Gourd Artist for 25 years. Her large "Avatar" mask was selected to be the cover art for HITH in 2013. She and five, very talented, other artists will be available at her Studio/Gallery during this years HITH 2021.

Jane's work will also be displayed at the Hidden In The Hills Showcase 2021 at the Desert Foothills Library from Oct. 7th to Jan. 20th, 2022.

Janes' designs are all one-of-a-kind and all reflect her love and appreciation of nature. Each piece is developed with a drawing done on the gourd. Most designs are then carved, painted and embellished which creates their own original look and to compliment the organic surface of the gourd. The unusual contours add to the interesting designs of the sculpture figures and masks that are her personal favorites. She also adds clay to some of her figure pieces for an even more realistic life form..

Jane also enjoys teaching at her home studio in the beautiful Sonoran desert.
Classes are posted on her website or schedule your own private group class.

She will be showing her work at the AZ Fine Art Expo annually in Scottsdale and can be seen in her Studio/Gallery most days. Stop by for an enjoyable and interesting art experience
