SPECIAL ORDERS
If you would like to order a special gourd, designed for you or someone you love, please let me know. While I never do two identical pieces, I can do gourd artwork that is similar to anything on the Portfolio page.

If you're ordering a gourd art piece as a special gift for someone, please let me know at least the following:

  • What are the person's special interests?
  • What colors does the person like?
  • Design preferences...such as Southwest, whimsy like fairies, flying elephants, dragons, etc.
  • Flowers? If so, what kinds and colors?
  • Animals? Again, if so, what animals?
  • Anything else you can think of I should know.

You get the idea...tell me what you want.

Or, if you have different ideas than what you see on Portfolio, email me and we can talk about what you'd really like to see. It helps to know what colors you like, what your special interests are, and what you really want the gourd to look like. As an experienced gourd artist, if I feel I cannot do a perfect job for you, I'll say so right up front.

So, want something special? Give me a holler and be sure to include a phone number so I can talk to you in person!
