who are we



About The Artists

      Vincent VanGourd was created by Steve & Beth Radtke, both refugees from corporate America. Prior to Vincent VanGourd, Beth was the Director of Operations for a major fabric & craft chain. Steve was a graphic designer / creative director, working on projects for Disney, 

Laura Ashley, Coors Brewing, Pabst Brewing,  Phillip Morris and

Harry Potter (retail) .

       Our interest in gourd art grew from a deep respect for nature,

a desire to resist the usual and a child-like sense of wonder.

       Our studio is located in rural Georgia, where we reside with our

many cats.
