James Beal

Description of Art: Dyed and carved gourd vases, bowls, rattles, birdhouses, etc.  Carvings are of animals, Native American symbols, crosses, etc.

Artist Biography: I have always loved creating art whether it was jewelry, beadwork, leather pouches, or paintings.  I started carving gourds about 3 years ago.  I was originally inspired by the Petroglyphs in New Mexico.  As I progressed, I have included original artwork, animals, Native American symbols, and crosses into my gourd artwork.
