I have always done some form of art for as long as I can remember. I was an Army Wife for 27 years and gleaned a lot from the art and cultures of states and countries where we lived. There is beauty and influence everywhere.
My love of gourd carving started about twelve years ago when we were full time RVers. It didn't take long for me to transform our motorhome kitchen table into a small, but doable studio. The "Kolorful Kritters" are a by product of my whimsical nature. The first time I created a "Dead Head", I was thrilled with the transition of bringing something back to life.
I work in my studio which is an extension of my personality. It is filled with bright colors, creativity and happiness...and yes, a whole lot of spilled paint.
