My name is Tammy Brown and I live on a 31 acre farm in a rural community
of the foothills of North Carolina. I've been married to my husband, Hassel
for, 17 years and we have one son, Trey.
For as long as I can remember, I've had a love of working with my hands. Whether it be with pen and markers as a child or building a fort in the woods as I got older.
So when I found gourds several years ago, it was love at first site. I love the process of growing them all the way to finished product which can take up to a year from seed planting to drying to crafting. My first love is painting, but as you will see I always love trying new mediums.
I am a member of the American Gourd Society, the North Carolina Gourd Society, the Indiana Gourd Society, and the Ohio Gourd Society, all of which I have traveled to and visited their fine shows. If you've never been to a gourd show, I must highly recommend it. It will truly be an experience you won't soon forget. The talents of many artists are all together and truly breathtaking and very humbling.
I hope that you will visit my website, GourdsFromTheGarden.net and check back often to see the new updates.
