About

Welcome to my obsession. I am obsessed with gourds. They just crack me up! I love all these wonderful organic forms from nature; they all seem to have their own funny personalities. In my previous life B.K. (before kids) I worked as a commercial artist, but since moving from the city to the country my lifestyle and art materials have changed quite a bit. I live on three acres and began 'gourding' when I grew some one year. I love creating with materials that are grown (hey! raw materials right in the garden!) or recycled (yes, there are perfectly good uses for all those cereal boxes and cardboard tubes) as much as possible. It's a delight to be able to create these pieces that so amuse me, and even better to see & share with all you fellow Etsyans. There are so many fabulous artists here! I hope you thoroughly enjoy looking around, if not my shop then one that tickles your fancy. Cheers to tickled fancies and all things made by hand.
