I am a self-taught gourd artist who loves the outdoors. Working with gourds is a hobby of mine that allows me to express my artistic side in life! I use a wood burner to burn designs onto the gourd, apply ink dyes to add stunning color, hand sew pine needles to the rim, and finish with a driftwood accent. When finished, people often mistake them for ceramic or leather.

Blending art and technology was not that far a leap for me, especially once I learned about laser cutters. My work is all about creating graphic, fun filled images with a 3D twist.
