Camryn Alwang has spent most of her 18 years helping to organize, paint, ship and sell gourds for her mother"s business, Gourdaments. Hence it is no surprise that she has developed her own "gourd" style that reflects her unique talent and the joy of creating in partnership with Mother Nature. Camryn's favorite muse is Nature --- butterflies, flowers, trees and leaves. She loves to capture the intricate beauty of a butterfly's wing and the delicate veins of a leaf. Camryn is currently a freshman in the honors program at SUNY New Paltz majoring in visual arts. Though her studies keep her busy, she always makes time for painting gourds.
