Meet the Artist

Thank you for visiting Maria’s Art Creations. My name is Maria Dellos. I pioneered the use of Ink Dyes on Gourd Art. I have 35 years experience in the arts and 20 years experience with rubber stamping. In 2000, I discovered the world of gourd art and proceeded to carry over all my experience to gourds. In my book, “New Gourd Art with Ink Dyes”, I show you how to use ink dyes and other products that support my techniques. Many patterns are included plus valuable information to help you in designing gourd art.

If you would like a short version of my techniques for no cost, click on techniques on the home page or visit You can watch how I use Memories Inks, Embossing Powders, Accent Powders, Metal Leafing, Heat Activated Glue, Wax and Varnish and much more. These videos are very valuable for quick information about using specific products, however, it is only a short introduction and does not replace the valuable hands on learning in my classes. Classes are flexible for dates and times. I offer classes one on one and to groups, bring a friend and enjoy a day of gourd art like you never experienced.

In my shopping cart there are a few choices you can make for final payment. PayPal is available but you must remember your PayPal password. You may send a check and once received, your package will be shipped. You may use your Visa, Master Card, Discover and American Express which are accepted by phone for your convenience. All you have to do is create an order and click phone order, then I will contact you for your credit card information.

I would also like to remind you that items are added to the shopping cart periodically. If you are wanting an item but don’t see it, please send me a message. I may have it but if I don’t, I will advise you of someone who may have that item.

My plan is to add so much more information, class info, new techniques and new products as soon as possible. Please visit often to see the new up-dates. Thank you for visiting. I look forward to hearing from you.

Best Wishes,

Maria Dellos
