Susan Davis

“My name is Susan Davis and I was born and raised in Palatka FL the 9th child out of 12. Coming from a country family, I've always had a love of art and as a kid I would sit underneath the oak tree and sketch. I later moved to North Carolina where I went to college for commercial art and advertising and then met a lady who showed me the wonderful world of gourds. Ever since falling in love with them I have put my personal touch and flare on each and everyone of my art pieces.”
