Sharon Patrick - Gourd Art

Sharon, also an accomplished jeweler, began exploring gourd art over a decade ago.  She found that many of the tools and techniques that she had mastered in jewelry making contributed to the unique quality in her gourds.

Sharon is inspired by the spirit of the Southwest and her love of its animals.  She feels that each gourd has its own essence and a special story to tell.

As a member of the New Mexico Gourd Society, Sharon has taught many classes and exhibited in several shows, in addition to having served as both Director and Craft Curator for Yucca Art Gallery.
