I was raised mostly in Wyoming. We traveled quite a bit.
Being raised on a guide ranch introduced me to gaited horses and firearms.
Having a dad who was an artist and a mom who was a tailor introduced me to design.
I have been working in the gaited horse industry for over 30 years. I have been a judge, clinician, competitor, 4 H leader, OHSET coach and trail rider.
My job was an art instructor for a number of years.
As my horse business grew and I traveled more I gave up my studio for a
dually and a horse trailer.
An artist needs a venue to let out their creativity. I started "Jewels by Gina G".
As the brass started piling up around me from my love of shooting...
When I decided to not travel as much with my horse business I had time to do things I enjoyed.
One of those was shooting. I started looking for ladies to shoot with as a social activity. I did not find many who liked to shoot as much as I did until I was introduced to The Well Armed Woman group.
I am now a TWAW leader. We have two chapters in the area.
I am the coordinator for Izaak Walton League Ladies of Eugene, Or.
I am also an NRA instructor.
