About Me

About Danielle


I was born in the small town of Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada and grew up in Montreal. As a young adult, my family moved to Los Angeles, where I met my husband and later became a US citizen. We raised three wonderful girls and are enjoying semi-retirement in Arizona. As my career as an accountant winds down, I’m able to pursue the creative arts that I’ve always loved. Drawing and painting have been lifelong hobbies. I was introduced to the art of gourding in 2010 and found it to be the perfect addition to my creative pursuits. Creating gourd art combines drawing and painting with new skills learned in carving, wood burning, and weaving. I’m happy to share my gourd art through my website. Browse my on-line gallery to see the art I’ve created.
