Gourd Art by Amy Callaway

Amy Callaway knew that she wanted to be an artist at the age of eight and at the age of nine she received her first award for a soap carving. After completing her B.F.A. degree in Art from Northern Illinois University she worked for many art-related jobs. She has a facebook page where she has be updating her followers about her exquisite drawings on gourds. Yes, gourds! She draws animals like owl, horse, butterfly, rooster, peacock and intricate patterns on gourds using pencil and acrylic paints. She also makes baskets out of gourds which will be perfect to use in kitchen or a craft room. Her artwork is inspired by her everyday life experiences and observations. 

If you would like see her work in person then visit the special event - Art Walk, Branson Arts Council in historic downtown Branson and Hollister on June 22 from 4-8 PM.

Cutest owl dolls if you search for the etsy shop called "luckyjuju"
She always sells out as soon as she posts things, so if you check out her "sales" section you can see what she makes - absolutely amazing!
This link might take you to her sales page
