Hi, I’m Jenn Avery

Welcome! I am an artist that has worked in just about every medium, but for over two decades I have primarily been "writing with fire" on gourds. The three-dimensional quality, feel of the organic form and the processes make it an exciting surface to work with.

Over the years I have developed an expertise with pyrography, but I also combine other media such as ink, acrylic, watercolor, colored pencil, carving, inlay, weaving and gold leaf to enhance the burning and make my pieces complete.

I am not taking new students at this time. Please head on over to my website to see examples of my work and sign up for my newsletter so you do not miss out when classes are open again.

Happy Gourding!!
