Featured Artist - Karen Berry
Karen grew up in Texas, and currently resides in Garland, TX. She learned about Cherokee culture and art through her mother, Martha Berry, who revived the tradition of Cherokee Beadwork.
She took a liking to gourd art through her history of wood working and painting. This medium was a natural progression, combining those talents. She incorporates pre-European contact and modern Cherokee designs into her work, both carving and painting the gourds.
She is currently growing her own gourds to further her work with this unique art form.
