Throughout my life, I have always enjoyed exploring art in its various forms. Although I’ve had no formal training, this hasn’t stopped me from trying various mediums, such as watercolours, pen & ink, lino boards, digital art, furniture design, cartooning and, lately, pumpkin and watermelon carving.
In 1996 my employer ran a charity pumpkin carving contest and I decided to enter and present an unusual, novelty pumpkin. My pumpkin won the contest and received a lot of positive attention . . . and it was then that the “spark was lit”. Encouraged by this, I have continued to submit a pumpkin at work each and every Halloween since. I’m happy to report that over $3,000 has been donated to charities as a result of my auctioned pumpkins (as of 2012). Hopefully, I can increase that this year and in the years to come.
