"After years of exploring the back country of the Great American West, so much of it still takes my breath away, and I have finally discovered where all these years of breathless encounters were leading the world of art......where all of these emotions can explode onto my canvas. A unlikely canvas, but my chosen canvas. Or did it choose me?!"

As a young girl growing up in Whittier, CA, Linda & her siblings would ride their horses across the open land and dirt roads that skirted the many orange groves. Family vacations were spent in the California High Sierras camping, fishing, and hiking. Her parents had a great love for God and nature which they instilled in all of their children.
The unlikely canvas, the hard shelled Gourd, entered her life seven years ago when she signed up for a local gourd art class. These gifts from the earth fascinated and inspired her with their unusual shapes and markings. One might say she is a self-taught artist, but she would say her life-long teacher has been the most capable, talented and beautiful that exists.....nature itself. Her husband eventually succumbed to their (gourd) charm, and has become a valuable partner in the art process.
Their gourd designs are inspired by their passion for "wandering" the back country of the western United States. Scattered clues of "people before us", who called the West their home, add a sense of wonder & mystery to this raw beauty. It is their hope that each of their gourd art pieces takes you to those places of wonder.

Members of the Western Colorado Center for the Arts, Carbon County Art Guild, Calabash Gourd Artisans, and The American Gourd Society. Their work is shared at Lema's Kokopelli Gallery in Moab, UT...Carbon County Art Guild Depot Gallery in Red Lodge, MT...Willow Creek and Colorado Canyons Galleries in Grand Junction, CO.
