About “The Backyard Barn”……

Angela, a self-taught Artist, has been drawing and painting since childhood. After experimenting with several mediums, the discovery of gourds and their wonderful versatility and character led to a whole new creative outlet.
John, a former Electronics Technician, uses his skills to hand-carve intricate designs on gourds with such precision, many assume they are done by machine. Together, he and Angela collaborate to create beautiful and functional gourd bowls and designs. No two are ever alike!
