Marie started gourd art after the pandemic began and has continued for about a year now. She has a history of artistic work with wood and other crafts however the gourd work has been a new and exciting adventure for her. She is a self- taught artist who loves to create artwork that people will enjoy in their homes. She more recently attended her first Art Show. She grew up in Chester, Ct. and attended Valley Regional High School.
Her gourds are currently exhibited at Spectrum Art Gallery in Centerbrook, CT.
