I grew up on a farm in Cloud Co Kansas, and from an early age had an intense interest in birds, butterflies and drawing. In college I majored in biology and art. I taught college biology for 40 years in Illinois, Colorado, Kansas and Swaziland in Southern Africa. The skillfully decorated gourds used in Africa an the beautiful pottery of the American Southwest were the impetus to try my hand at "gourd art". I began using gourds as my "canvas" for drawing, painting and wood-burning about 20 years ago. The innate beauty of gourds (their shapes, sizes, colors and textures) is fascinating to me. The inspiration for my designs comes from the natural world around me, (fauna and flora) all gifts from God, "the Master Artist" and "Author of my life". Although I continue to experiment and enjoy all types of techniques, my favorites are wood-burning (pyro-engraving), "gourd sculpture" (using gourds and gourd pieces) and gourd carving.
