After moving to Arizona (after living in Missouri, Texas, Michigan and California) in 2005,
it took a couple of years to figure out that there were too many neat things to do here,
so I “retired” from the working world. I was looking around for a new hobby
to occupy my time and was attracted to “gourd art” after seeing some of the products
in various art shows. I then took my first class in 2010 and found it quite interesting.
I’m far from being a dedicated gourd artist, but I do find it challenging to come up with different
(at least in my mind) things to do with them. I’ve never done any better than several
third places in the gourd competition, but it’s fun trying to achieve more.
