About Judy.
I have been an artist my entire life. From the first grade, all through school, a career in sign painting, and truly my everyday life, I've been creating art in one form or another. 
This site features Gourd Art and some of the wood carvings I've created in the past.
   
 
"BELL"
I have experienced some artistic time in sculpting. This unique clay sculpture of Marilyn I created from a picture I'd seen in a magazine.
I've spent time in wood carving. From full sized pieces to small table size. The mermaid here is carved from a cedar log, one solid piece.
Two more wood carvings...
Princess LouAnna is carved from a 
Sweet Gum tree log and
Marilyn is Cedar.  The bases show the
sizes of the logs.

Gourds are my passion.
We started growing gourds for a hobby fifteen years ago. After making many bird houses and gourd  characters, one day I had the bright idea to cut and combine different gourds together to form vases. This was just the beginning of now twelve years of doing art shows. This is my original idea. I created my first vase September 2003.
