I am a gourd artist and have been creating gourd art for the past 18 years. My work has been in three galleries and I am currently showing at Gallery Saratoga in Saratoga,CA. I took a gourd mask workshop in Santa Cruz in 1995. For the first 4 years I made mostly masks of women. Since then I have made animals, bowls, pins, ornaments, people and decorative teapots. I won awards on three of my teapots and have several of the people gourds published in the book Gourd Dolls and Spirit Figures by Ginger Summit and Jim Widess.
If you are interested in owning one or more of my gourds, I would recommend you go to Gallery Saratoga or to come to one or more of the shows I am participating in this year.
