Here Comes Halloween

I love Halloween. I love all the silly and creative ways to make tasty food look ghastly. I love the socially sanctioned dressing up; it’s like people remember that it’s ok to be childlike and have fun, even if just once a year.

I love Halloween. Not so much the gruesome and gory iterations; no, it’s all about the classic, fun and silly (and only slightly macabre) decorations. I love all the creative ways to make tasty food look ghastly. I love the socially sanctioned dressing up; it’s like people remember that it’s ok to be childlike and have fun, even if just once a year. I love it!

Ok, so I know you’re saying, “It’s only August… Halloween is in the end of October.”   True. However, I’ve always started my planning a month or two in advance… but now, with my Etsy shop, I have even greater impetus to get serious with my planning ahead. And I have.

In the works, at this very moment, are several really great designs that are inspired by Halloween. I plan to have them up and in my shop starting in September. Happy Halloween!

I've been active in the arts pretty much my entire life. Growing up, my home was filled with creativity; my dad's an accomplished painter and my mom has always harbored a great love for music and art and they passed it on down to their kids. When I was a little, my parents saw my avid interest (and inclination to draw on any available space - including school tests and myself) and they gave me a sketch book for my birthday and things have just blossomed from there. Officially, my main focus of study has been music, but my true love has always been art. I've been commissioned as an illustrator for kids books, a portrait painter, creator of center pieces for private parties and, most recently, a designer of kids clothes. My aim is for the designs to express a whimsical and playful feel to reflect the essence of childhood. However, I also strive to branch out from the generic "pink princess" and "sports fan" designs that are so prevalent out there. Every kid has their own personality, why not express it?
