Margaret Sullivan, Gourd Art

Click photos for full size

Inspired by the great Southwest, Margaret spends hours dreaming up creations on gourd canvases only nature can create. With the help of pyrography carving, dyes, paints, and a cornucopia of beads, precious stones, and feathers, her gourds are turned into creations of art.

 

Most known for her Kachinas and masks, she will tell you she still does not have a specialty because of the possibilities of her art.

Because of the time required for her pieces, Margaret only participates in six to seven shows a year, but sells out of her home gallery.

 

Margaret resides in Rio Verde, Arizona and is a member of the American Gourd Society, the Arizona Gourd Society, the Southwest Gourd Association, and the Verdes Art League. Margaret also gives lessons in her art to individuals.
