Noreen and her art ...

I began to develop my artwork in 1982. A deep appreciation of natural elements, textures and colors of the outdoors began in my childhood. I took this appreciation into working with gourds and have incorporated other natural materials as embellishment to create my artwork. Natural material is the signature of my work. I truly enjoy having you see examination of texture, design and color throughout nature come alive in my work.

My first work was gourd masks for which I have gained acclaim. Every mask reveals the personality and spirit of the gourd. My masks have been shown in galleries and collected by folks who follow my shows. Since then I have let the creative process move my love for this medium into other sculptural home decor pieces such as vessels and three dimensional wall hagings of bamboo and saguaro ribs ... but always with the gourd as the center. Art can also be functional and provide a unique one-of-a-kind gift so you will also see keepsake/jewelry boxes that I call my "temple box" as well as bightly colored and uniquely designed bread or tortilla warmers at my shows. Both make a statement as a "show" piece gift.

Studio Home

My studio home is located in the Tucson Mountains where there is plenty of desert, plant life, wild critters and open sky. But at the same time it is easily found if you want to make a visit to see the work and discuss a custom piece or gift. Please call ahead so I can expect you and provide a good tour.
