My gourd work is inspired by a whimsical view of the world. Although I have experimented with many of nature’s materials, the lowly gourd really caught my eye. The number and variety of gourds and their individual imperfections provide a blank canvas for the adventurous artist. Over the past six years, I have pushed the envelope of creativity to produce a number of unusual pieces. My gourd purses, vessels, and other oddities are designed to provoke unexpected attention and amusement. Approaching my gourd work with passion, I derive joy from taking a product of nature , applying an imaginative design and finishing with a unique piece of artwork.
