regarding working with dried gourds as an art medium. Her unique dolls will
be on display and available for purchase.

Tracy Swartz lives in Lake Township, Ohio and creates her art in her home
studio. She says, “I love evoking people‚Äôs inner happy, warm-fuzzies, and
lightness. The dolls, their characters, and stories remind us to stay soft,
connect to that child-like wonder of the world and to find the magic dust
in the mundane. Also, I love being a female human being. Gourds provide
the perfect medium to express all our wondrous, silly, sassy, beautiful facets.
Gourds are perfect for the female shape and Mother Nature creates them in
a lovely variety of tantalizing shapes and sizes and textures. Each one is a
unique individual just like we are.”
