Hi, my name is Catherine Watkins. I am a mother of 4 children, and married a wonderful man for 35 years, much has happended over the years. My husband passed away in 2008. Then in 2013. I lost my son to diabetes. I also had my own soap company. I lost all interest in everything. so after many years, I finally got back to my art. My love and passion of gourds, working with clay and making jewelry. With the encouragement from my children, family and friends.
I have been in the art for over 23 years. My friend and I founded the Gerogia Gourd Society in 1998. I am pleased to say it has come a long way, with many new members. I hope you come join me as we share information about gourds and gourd art
