Bring in the Veggie Heads!

"Celebrate Halloween"

Strike up the band, it's Halloween!!
Now available for $145, plus $8 shipping.
I've created two vintage-style veggie heads, complete with tambourine and cello. The two pumpkin characters have hand-scultped heads and painted cotton batting bodies. Vintage crepe paper adorns their collar and they wear a tiny gold dresden buckle. They are celebrating October 31 in the cemetary, among the pumpkins, fallen leaves, tall grass and a smiling crescent moon. "Spanish moss" drips from the curly willow branch behind them. The tombstones are made from sculpey and the pumpkins are paper mache. A tiny red lantern sits on the wood base to the right of the piece. Measures 13" wide, 7" deep and 7" tall. 
Best of all it lights up!!

Tiny white lights give it an eerie glow after dark. Simply plug them in, no batteries required. If you have any questions, please email me:

Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween all!!

Celebrate 365: My Kind of Magazine!

I am so pleased to be in the Fall 2011 double issue of Celebrate 365 magazine. It's a wonderful publication coming out four times a year, and it offers collectors a bevy of holiday art created by talented artisans. To order the magazine or subscribe, click here. My work appears on three pages:

My curious eye ornament was featured. I've had so many fans say that these ornaments are delectably creepy, because the eye follows you around the room. It's perfect for your Halloween tree and I have one left in my etsy shop here.  

In addition, one of my Halloween recycled collages made the pages of the magazine. "The Witching Hour" is made from recycled construction lumber and a page from an old National Geographic - yes, the page makes up the background. The wood makes the perfect substrate for these two gothic looking witchlings and adds weight to the piece. The witches collage has sold, but I do have one similar for all you Edgar Allen Poe fans! It too is in my etsy shop here. 

The third page of my art appears in the Late Summer portion of the double issue. Turn the magazine over and you'll find summer art, including a captain's shell box I created. You can read more about that on my mixed media blog: My Birdsong.

I hope your days leading up to a favored holiday are pleasant and colorful. Only a couple more weeks until Halloween!
