The Dreaming Gourd

“The Dreaming Gourd: An Illustrated Folk Tale, is my current project. It is the culmination of a decades-long enchantment with the beautiful form of the gourd, which led to a deep study of the plant.

I came to understand how important its role has been in human survival and development. This fascination prompted me to create the Dreaming Gourd story to address my growing concern about the challenging times we currently face on our beautiful planet.

The slideshow will give you a glimpse into some of the imagery that I created to illustrate the tale.”

Get to Know Victoria

Victoria Mowrer is a multi-dimensional artist, storyteller, magic maker, and lover of all things wild and wonderful. She believes beauty has the power to heal. A passion for exploration, experimentation, and truth-seeking has been with her since childhood. Growing up as an only child on her grandparents’ farm in rural Pennsylvania gave her the freedom to seek out adventures in nature that called to her spirit: collecting stones and arrowheads, building life-size snow castles, and molding things out of clay gathered from the banks of the stream and pond in the pine woods nearby. During that time, she witnessed her grandfather being excommunicated from his Mennonite community for purchasing a television. That experience sparked a wariness of authority and religion and fueled her already inquisitive nature to wonder about complex ideas from a young age.
