Artist Statement

Gourds provide a canvas on which one may explore a multitude of themes, using color, texture, carving, and wood burning to produce a unique piece of artwork. I begin with a gourd - sometimes the shape, size and markings suggest an idea. Other times, I have an idea and find a gourd that fits my needs. I love to create texture and dimension, piercing and creating holes, stippling, carving, adding materials like feathers, nails, stones, metal, leather, and other natural materials. I enjoy creating a piece of artwork with lots of detail, encouraging the viewer to turn the piece around and around. In the end, after all my work, I want the gourd to still be identified as a gourd. Each piece is unique, one of a kind.
