Sheryl Jones is a resident of Depoe Bay, OR. She was born and raised in Arizona; she has lived all over the United States but has spent most of her life in the North and South West. She has been carving gourds for over 15 years, winning many awards at different gourd shows, art exhibits and fairs. Her “real” job is a computer consultant for a major consulting firm where she works as a programmer and project manager. She works on her gourds every evening and through the weekends. She finds the carving work to be very calming. Many people ask “what is a gourd?”. A gourd is a fruit from the family Cucurbitaceae. It is closely related to a pumpkin. They are green when ripe and if opened as soon as they are ripe have a meat or pulp similar to a pumpkin, however the pulp is very bitter tasting and is not good to eat. Gourds have been used since ancient times as musical instruments, masks, utensils, plates, and to carry water. Visit Sheryl's website at: www.sassygourds.com Email her at: Sheryl@sassygourds.com
