To show my love of nature and art, I enjoy sharing how to raise, harvest and choose gourds to become creations of art. By sharing the history of gourds I can show their usefulness and beauty seen by people from the past and present. I begin my piece of art by drawing the design on each gourd with a pencil, then I wood burn, carve, stain and inlay turquoise, lapis, malachite, abalone and mother of pearl. With each piece I create and name, I share the story I see in each one of a kind piece of my gourd art.
