About the Artist. A sentence or short paragraph please.Art satisfies the creative side of me and provides that balance to work and responsibility I think we all need and seek.
For me, the gourd “is not merely the medium that I use, but a genuine co-creator of the finished product. Working with organic material such as gourds is a relational experience that is extremely important to what I do and how I create.”
