About the designer Aurelia Conway :
Aurelia specialized in acrylic designs for gourds for beginner and intermediate painters. Her work features birdhouses, Santas, folk art scenes and other unusual ideas for gourds. Much of her painting was inspired by her love of gardening and the birds that she enjoyed on her rural Southern Indiana farm, Hummingbird Hill.
For more than 30 years, Aurelia Conway painted, beginning with oils and later converting to acrylics. She painted on a variety of surfaces, but for the last ten years of her life, she painted exclusively on gourds. In 2004, while attending the Society of Decorative Painters annual convention in Phoenix, Arizona, Aurelia succumbed to a sudden heart attack and passed away. Her art and her memory will live on through the lives of the many people who continue to enjoy her love of the art of painting on gourds.

Emmywillisatt.net "I was happy to get this book and excited to see the patterns in it. While I havent used them yet, I do have plans to do at least 4 of the gourds shown in the book. I love shopping from home with Factory Direct Crafts, it beats being disappointed with the craft retailers in the area in selection, appearance and customer service. Thanks again, Factory Direct Crafts!Emmy"
