Janice Reich / Gourd Artist
About the Artist:
Fascinated with all the different aspects of how a gourd can be transformed Janice started her education through books & classes. Her talent has flourished and her passion as a gourd artist was quickly reinforced with multiple awards.
Janice helps her students allow their art to take on the natural form of the gourd that then becomes intertwined with other components. Each shape gives opportunity and inspiration for a unique design – with surprises along the way
