Gene has been making scale models, working with wood, and handling fibre for several decades. His interests and activities have been aided and abetted by Ellen, his first and still his only wife.
We have lived in many places, starting in Pennsylvania, through New Orleans, New Hampshire, Saudi Arabia, Oklahoma, Virginia, California, Arkansas, New Mexico, and finally back to New Orleans.
Ellen and I are both retired and continue to work on our various art and craft projects. We have down-sized considerably and in the process shed multiple looms and a printing press, both with sundry associated equipment and supplies. We have now chosen to focus on ship modeling (Gene) and needlework (Ellen) while continuing our reading and knitting. And enjoying the pleasures of both New Orleans and Santa Fe.
