Debbie Skelly's love for gourds started when she moved to Maggie Valley, NC in 2005. She saw her first gourd in a gallery in Boone, NC. and from that day on she knew that she wanted to work with gourds. Her designs are influenced by nature, Native American and Southwestern styles. She often incorporates dream catchers, bears, turtles, butterflies, hummingbirds, dragonflies, and kokopellis into her gourds. Debbie uses a variety of mediums such as leather dyes, inks, polishes, paint and clay. Carving and wood burnings are also used on many of her gourds, and natural embellishments and beads often added as accents.
