    • Artist Statement
    • Over the years, I have tried drawing, painting, screen printing
    • and etching, but nothing excites me as much as creating art with
    • gourds. I affirmed my love of gourd crafting in 2003 and have
    • been producing gourd creations ever since.
    •  
    • My primary goal in creating gourd art is to capture the essence
    • of the medium and transform it into elegant works of art.
    • Additionally, I am challenged to create works that go beyond
    • the traditional confines of what gourd art is.
    •  
    • I designed figurative pieces and vessels initially. In 2006, I started working on a line
    • of distinctive gourd jewelry after being captivated by the book, “1000 Rings: Inspiring
    • Adornments for the Hand.”
    • Photos of figures and vessels by Bob Hall. Photos of jewelry and the artist by Sala Faruq.
