I live in southern California and have become proficient in a variety of Media techniques over the years. I completed the Master
Gardener program in 2006, which led to botanical illustration classes. Finding this passion was exciting and lead me toward gourd art.
The two skills blended well. I am expanding my knowledge not only of gourds, but various enhancement media’s. I love the creativity
guard art presents, creating unique and wonderful gifts. Gourds come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so I can go in many directions.
I create my designs by looking at the gourd and finding the one that suites the design that I have in mind. I also let the gourd speak to
me through its shape and mottling on the skin. Creating gourd art requires several steps. The gourd is prepped, and the design put in
place. Then, I proceed to burn the design with special wood burning tools. I place a stain, paint, or carving on it, or just leave the gourd
natural. Then seal the finishing piece.
I create designs from modern to traditional, cultural and
dramatic designs using both secular, Christian and Judaic
ideas for all occasions to enhance the gourd. I have
holiday gourds, Santa, snowmen, Judaic holidays, spring
themed baskets and much more. This piece of art is a
unique gift. Bowls come in a various sizes; vases, big to
small; birdhouses in various styles, and non-cut gourds,
with designs created on them. The gourds I create can be
personalized for that special person or occasion. Some gift
ideas are friendship, special occasion, thank you,
anniversary and birthday.
