Colleen Heinemann

Artistic endeavors have always been an important aspect of my life:  watercolor painting for many years, I finally found my passion growing in my garden: the gourd.  Once dried and cleaned, the individuality of each gourd has provided me with the “canvas” I need to incorporate so many different and wonderful techniques into one piece.  For over 20 years I have painted, cut, and woven my art out of and onto gourds – often taking care to emphasize the inherent beauty of the gourd itself.  Many of my projects utilize bead work, staining, acrylic painting, weaving, and natural materials.  In 2009, I began carving on gourds while studying with the world renowned gourd artist Bonnie Gibson.
