Mixed Media Artist
"Gourd Heaven" was part of a show exclusively for 8 Hood River Artists, at Lan Su Chinese Gardens in Portland, Ore. in the month of June 2018. I submitted the gourd at the left and included a short poem to go with it. I was then asked to do a demo during that month. I had a wonderful time meeting visitors to the garden and showing and telling them about my work with the gourds.
Approximately 12' tall.
"Belly Dancer" was inspired by a group of older ladies who participated in a Fourth of July parade, dancing, singing, twirling and clapping to the music in their bright, matching dresses. They were so full of fun I wanted to record in art their joy.
Approximately 12" tall.
Inspired by a favorite pastime. This bright and cheery little gourd would make a beautiful centerpiece on your table sitting on a base of shiny pebbles or fall leaves.
This is such a unique little gourd with some hints of an Indian motif here and there that inspired me to stick some feathers in the top. It would be lovely all by itself or with dried flowers or grasses in it. Does not come with the feather. Sorry.
