Welcome to the world of gourd art! For inspiration in my designs I turn to many cultures, nature and my love of color and form. I use a variety of coloring mediums and prefer to embellish with materials provided by nature such as pine needles, driftwood and sea shells. Everything and anything can be used on my gourd “canvases” so the experimentation and learning process never ends. My primary designing goal is to let the natural beauty of the gourd shine through. Though the gourd may be dyed, carved and embellished, I want the viewer to always be aware that it is first and foremost a beautiful, organic creation of nature, thus the name “Gourds in Costume
