I was a graphic artist for the Madison Metro School District for 38 years before retiring. Prior to that I was at two different ad agencies. I have been enjoying out-of-the-norm gourd projects for 16 years. I started by joining the Wisconsin Gourd Society. Additionally, I was the co-editor for the Gourderly Quarterly newsletter and contributed and assembled articles and photos for it until WGS ended in 2020. My gourd art has been in the Monroe Art Gallery, The Middleton Public Library, the Madison Civic Center and is currently with three galleries in Janesville, Mineral Point and Middleton. I have taught a variety of gourd classes throughout the years including at Olbrich Botanical Gardens. This past summer, I was in two arts festivals and may pursue more in the future! There is so much out there still to be experienced. It is a unique art form available to everyone and anyone.
