Hi everyone! Just updating my journal with randomness.

What I'm up to: Sculpting random gourd things for a local one-woman show in September (in Asheboro, NC). I've been posting my works on Facebook and Instagram mostly, and then adding them here when I get the chance too. Not everything will make it on here, but I'll be posting highlights.

If you have suggestions on what you'd like to see me make, feel free to comment!
Recently completed or getting ready to make gourdies: fish, octopus, jellyfish, dragons, owls, mushrooms, tree, crane, frogs, robots, yeti, turtles, flowers - and more to come!


Artsy plans: More sculpting, some instructional teaching on gourd sculpture, shows, etc. I plan on illustrating more than painting animal portraiture in the future. ^_^ I like illustrating whimsically more now.
Event list:
*April 16th, Ghost Creek SC Gourd Show
*May 7th-8th, Kiln Opening in Randleman NC with Joseph Sands
*Last weekend in May, visiting Cherokee Gourd Festival
*August 18-20, Cedar Mountain NC Gourd Gathering
*November, PCI Fine Arts Festival (winston-salem NC), maybe Roy's Folks (High Point NC)
More to be determined. I never have anything to do during the summer. XD I'll make more art instead.

So dat's it, toodle-loo and have a great day!

Wow, sounds like you are up to some cool stuff! What's the Cherokee Gourd Festival??

:D Thanks! The Cherokee Gourd Festival is the largest gourd fest in the Carolinas (and maybe across the eastern seaboard except for Florida - they have one bigger.) There are tons of gourd classes going on, artists selling art, craft supplier booths, gourd farmers selling... I want to go there just to buy stuff. ;)
