About the Founder of Arizona Gourds 
Bonnie Gibson experimented with many artistic pursuits over the years, including scale miniatures, woodcarving, scrimshaw, and lost wax casting.  

In the late 90's, she discovered gourds, and it was a great fit.  Her current emphasis is on educating other gourders, traveling extensively to teach power carving and many other gourd subjects.  While she still enjoys creating her own art, she also loves getting new people excited about gourd crafting.
