Susan Simkins produces unique contemporary gourd art with a finished product that mimics the appearance of ceramic yet has the unusual shape of natural gourds. “I love the challenge of taking a natural gourd with all of the debris and mold and unusual twists and shapes and turn it into something beautiful.”

Most of her latest work could be described as eclectic in style, however, she also is greatly influence by contemporary southwest styles. Employing carving techniques, acrylic painting, and mixed media embellishments produces artistic gourds with very unique flair.
